Con Currently in Beta

Froont is a web app that runs in your browser - not a full desktop application. While the developer touts this as a 'feature', web apps cannot be as full-featured - nor as stable - as desktop apps (specially when dealing with projects that might be large, or complex).
Con Buggy auto-save
Froont does not provide users with a way to save work, instead making you rely on the auto-save feature that saves every minute. However it's been known to be buggy and not save progress.
