Version 6 is available in two license modes: Standard and Pro. "Standard" is the continuation of previous versions, while "Pro" contains new features like upload capability, using scripts for programming its tasks, a simple web server (called "Web Access"), ability to act as a proxy server or work in a Client/Server mode when using two or more computers in a network.

Professional CS:GO player Christopher Alesund, known in-game as GeT_RiGhT, got his name when he saw GetRight on his brother's computer screen.
