View Full Version : DemoX or DemoNow?

Both are internet publications, but being new to this I have some questions.

I see DemoX runs in a browser and DemoNow runs on the local computer.

Is one better for low bandwidth users?

What considerations are there in choosing which option to use?

My personal opinion is that DemoX is better. I find that demos will usually run faster with a DemoX build. Having said that, there are some actions and features that you can not use with DemoX.

Here are some good Knowledge Base articles to look at that outline the differences:
