The current version (1.1.28) crashes my mac (running 10.8.4) if I leave SDL running after downloading a file. Nothing in any logs indicates any dodgy activity, but if SDL is running, after a while the mac hangs - and if it isn't, it doesn't. I can still use the mouse to move the cursor, but everything else is frozen, and only a restart gets me out of this. I've contacted the devs for help with this, but had no response so far.
Is anyone else experiencing this?

Yoxi, try downloading the latest version, which is 1.2.0, and see if that helps. If not, try contacting the developer through

Ah, as you mentioned to someone else here, my version is already 1.2, just says 1.1.28 in the app's own info pane. I have already contacted the devs with no response, but will have another go, thanks.

version number in the about window says 1.1.28, when trying to update it says "You're up to date! - Speed Download Lite 1.2.0 is currently the newest version available."

Snaporaz, try going to the Applications directory, highlighting Speed Download Lite, and opening an info window (either type Cmd-I or go to the File menu and select Get Info). If the version number you see in the Get Info window is 1.2.0 (at the bottom of the General section, just above the color labels), then you're all set: the problem is that the dev forgot to update the About-window NIB. If the Info window shows that it's some version other than 1.2.0, send an e-mail to the developer's support department at info [at] yazsoft [dot] com.

I've just uninstalled SDL for the second time, which is a shame as it's an app I really used to like and would like to keep using. It's just been too flaky an experience relying on SDL for my downloads — the icing on the cake being that it crashed when I went to the Yazsoft site to download the uninstaller.

For some balance, this is was, and can be, a tremendously useful application with the ability to provide consistency across browsers and to automatically file downloads accoring to type. Since the release of 10.7 it has been launching inconsistently despite all my best efforts to trace the problem and use the email and forum available as a registered user.

I see that Yazsoft still has the Speed Download forums locked and this suggests (to me at least) that I am not alone.

In this latest version (1.2.0)... when you click about, it still says that it's version 1.1.28. Minor glitch.

SDL 1.1.24 doesn't intercept YouTube video downloads in Google Chrome (11.0.696.57 stable version). I don't even see the SDL download option in the right-click context menu.
It works fine in Safari 5.0.5 and Firefox 4 though.
