Sadly (since it looks like a neat app), it crashes immediately after the trial notification on Mountain Lion. Not surprising, I guess, since this version is six years old.

2 years and 7 months, still no update from the acquiring company.

Too bad, looks like a neat product, but crashes on SL as soon as you try to save something.

Does somebody know what happened to the company - at least their website? Is this app still maintained?

A month later and the site is still not working. I guess Softchaos went out of business. To bad. I loved both webstractor and workstrip.

Just tried to phone Softchaos at the London phone number. The phone has been disconnected.

Amazing that a company will just walk away from its products.

I bought Webstractor in 2004. Great application! I've archived thousands of pages that I use for research and casual reading. I just got a new MacPro, and Webstractor crashes whenever I try to save. Takes forever to load my files (much slower that on my ancient iBook G4.

I had contacted somebody I think last year, or maybe in 2008, and they said they were going to update Webstractor. No update yet. I'm very disappointed that Webstractor doesn't work with Snow Leopard.

I can still use Webstractor on my old iBook G4, but I won't be using my iBook much anymore. I hope that somebody will fix this issue, so we can continue using Webstractor with Snow Leopard ....

Its a nice program but I would like to be able to save a page as PDF as is on the screen with banners an all. Also $80 is pricy I'd be willing to pay between 29-40 for it but not $70

An excellent easy-to-use program perfect for research. Unofrtunately, it's too expensive. Should be around $40, especially since History Hound is $20 and Traiblazer is free. I know these programs offer far fewer features, but still . . ..

I've had a chance to play around a bit with Webstractor and am quite impressed with it. It was easy to get up and running and make editing web pages a snap. I have no experience with html and was (1) able to move things around (2) easily edit fonts and text (3) delete useless ad-type materials which oftentimes clutter the left side of a web page when you print.

My favorite editing option is the ability to add in pages or move any page around in any order. And if you want to connect various clippings or materials together, no problem. Webstractor lets you do that too with 1-click. It is very user-friendly.

Overall, I am very pleased so far and plan on purchasing it.
