FlashGot Mass Downloader (vs FlashGot)

FlashGot Mass Downloader (vs FlashGot)

On AMO "FlashGot" is named FlashGot Mass Downloader.

On flashgot.net "FlashGot" is named FlashGot (& maybe with an exclamation point !).

(Also note that one of the linked external Download Managers is called, "Mass Downloader".)

No big deal (to me), but I know of 1 occasion where it has lead to a little confusion.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20110420 SeaMonkey/2.0.14 Pinball NoScript FlashGot AdblockPlus
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 SeaMonkey/2.33.1

(What do I know, but) it's probably to alleviate some of this kind of confusion...
(Note NoScript Security Suite vs NoScript, viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14220 . Possibly same deal.)
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
