I have been using Chinese Star for quite sometime. I have never think of change out this Chinese character input method. Only recently i encounter some problem with some crashes with my computer and resulted weird performance of Chinese Star and auto shutdown of my computer. This has lead me to looks for another option. One of them is Google HanYu PinYin Input method. I have been knowing this many months ago. Somehow too much rely on Chinese Star and never try it out.
