Here are links for HostsWidget 1.1 :
One more data point: Version 1.2 has no effect on /etc/hosts whatsoever. I don't have version 1.1 to fall back on.
Maybe I need to find version 1.1. Same comment as the other 1.2 user... everything is dimmed, and even though I can type in the host and IP, nothing happens after I enter my password in the ensuing authentication box.
Me again. Found version 1.1 on my hard drive, and installed it. It works fine!
Looks interesting but doesn't seem to work for me. Installed v1.2, typed test1 127.0.0.1, clicked on activate changes, entered password. Now, no changes at all in /etc/hosts

This is freakin' awesome (to steal the tagline of a now-defunct Mac magazine). Absolutely perfect for what it does, it flushes the cache automatically, and is not ridiculously cumbersome like certain other utilities that do the same thing. Thank you for keeping us from writing shell scripts that would only confuse our average users!
Fantastically simple to use - does what it says it does. Sure beats mucking around in terminal or screwing with the private/etc/hosts file. I've encountered no bugs so far.
