How to Download eBuddy on PC

False Positives for eBuddy on PC Download, But Bookmarking is a Start


Q: Dear Brandon,
How can I download eBuddy on PC so I can use it right from my desktop? I love eBuddy and would love to be able to use it on both my computer and my mobile device.

A: Unfortunately, you cannot download eBuddy on PC. While there are a number of Google results which yield a false positive, you will not be able to download eBuddy for PC.

While the Brothersoft site referenced above does have an "eBuddy on PC" application, it is an eBay auction application and not the popular IM client.

Unfortunately, either by sheer accident or in an effort to trick search engines (I'd bet the latter), they have used an eBuddy Web Messenger image on their site for the eBuddy 1.0.1 download.
