Default [Tool] Devotion/Constellation Browser

I am fairly new to grim dawn, however I love it. One of my complaints was, as a new player, there is no simple way to view/browse/plan the devotion points. I have spent the last day putting together a simple constellation browser. It is a standalone application, written in c#, to easily search for devotion skill bonuses, and find which constellations will provide the stats you are looking for. Perhaps it's already been done, and perhaps much better. But I figured what the hell, might as well share it and maybe get some feedback.
If it helps, I'm glad, if it's terrible, my apologies.

There are four search bars that you may manually type a search filter into. So, if you wanted to locate a constellation that provides both offensive and defensive bonuses, you would type 'offensive' into the first search bar, and 'defensive' into the second search bar, and a list of all constellations providing these attributes will be populated. You can then click on the constellation name in the display box, and a full description of all the attributes will be displayed, as well as an image of the constellation.
Alternatively, you can use the drop down menu to search for a constellation by name, or a separate drop down menu and browse by attribute (there are a lot).

Constructive feedback is welcome. If it's something I think is a good idea, and within my realm of capability, I will implement it.
Also any issues with installation, execution, etc would also been helpful to hear about. I have personally had no issues yet, and successfully deployed it on a few pc's.

Download Here.

Installation:
I tried setting up github, but it was extremely complication (or i'm an idiot) for what I was trying to do. It can be downloaded from my google drive. It is a simple zip folder, which, when extracted contains the deployed clickonce folders generated by visual studio. It's approximately 38mb (size is due to constellation images, which i didn't bother to scale down to a possibly more appropriate size). Installation will complete automatically by running the setup.exe.
*NOTE: a user had issue using the zip extractor linked in the google docs page. It works if you simply click the 'download' icon on the top right of the google docs screen, and extract the folder once downloaded.

Hope it is useful for someone

It can be downloaded at

Not sure why you posted the download link three times, but thanks for the tip how to download stuff from a google drive.

Does it install any software or does the setup only create some registry entries?

I got link happy I guess. It doesnt Install any additional software, just itself... The installer may download additional .net framework, but most people should already have the required files. All the info and images have been embedded in the manifest, so there is no need for additional downloads, file access or anything like that. It's really a very basic program I put together to help sort through the information.
