I'm doing a trial at FMPHost and since I haven't purchased an FM client yet I decided to test my uploaded database with WebDirect.
First I thought, “Wow! This looks just like with the client! And it’s fast!”
But after leafing through a few records I could not get to the next record and I seemed to get logged out and had to login again.
Then it happened a 2nd time.
FMPHost support replied: "Unfortunately, WebDirect on FileMaker Server 14 is not as stable as WebDirect on FileMaker Server 13. If possible, try moving your database there, you'll most likely have a better experience."
Is that everybody's general opinion?
When it worked though I was impressed with the speed and appearance of WebDirect and wonder how much regular users really need a client. Is the client typically much better overall?
