Connectify Downloaded More than Google Freakin' Chrome, This Week!

I heard some massive "woo-hoos" from the other side of the office a few minutes ago. In the middle of something, I didn't get up to investigate, but word quickly spread: Connectify for Windows v2.2.0 is the #32 Most Downloaded Application on! And we're talking about the big-momma list of Most Popular Windows Downloads.

To give some context here, we're just a few spots behind Adobe Flash Player, and we're actually three spots AHEAD of Google's Chrome browser. Of course, is a secondary site for folks like Google and Adobe, but still... well-played Connectify users! Let's keep the downloads coming so we can hang onto our self-satisfied smirks ;)
