Adware in jDownloader Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I want to leave a warning, not concerning this plugin, which works fine, but: Be careful with the Installation of jDownloader itself. I can confirm, that recent installers contain and install various (!) adware, some are extremely hard to remove. Without opt-out btw.
