Yeah arguably simpler although they've been accused of being part of some scams and "stealing" your hashrate. They are also close-sourced so no way to verify what's going on. Besides what's the fun in doing it the easy way? ;)

I've heard the same rumours indeed, but when you're just starting, it's nice to see a Hashrate displayed in less than 1 minute. Anyway, any pool has the theoretical power of stealing your hashrate, right?

I agree for the fun. :-)
