1Password now works again on Maxthon (and Chromium) if you make a small adjustment in 1P's settings. Go to 1P's Preferences -> Advanced and uncheck the bottom most item "Verify browser code signature." This allows unsigned browsers like Chromium and Maxthon to access 1P. Just be sure not to try to add 1P to any browser you're not sure of. I'm sure of Maxthon and Chromium. I'm not sure of SRWare Iron.

Except that only a few minutes after my download of 12.16 the link to it has disappeared from the site given above. Perhaps you can find it again if you try.

I tried this for a week or so when it was first announced. The version at that time did work in the sense of deleting all cookies when the browser quit. But I also had Cookie, from the same developer, installed; and since there's no way to disable Cookie that I can find I never knew for sure which app was deleting the cookies. Privatus appears to be just a simplified version of Cookie (i.e. no preferences) and if you just want a cookie cleaner that deletes all your cookies on quit this will probably do the job. But if you're satisfied with Cookie I see no reason to switch.

According to the developer's site Version 2.80 for Mavericks is "in progress."

If like me you've been fretting about your inability to change fonts and font size in recent versions of Safari you can do it now by clicking on the Safari icon in the TinkerTool menu.

There's been a section for Safari options in every version of TT that I've owned. It's possible that the option to change fonts is a feature only in the current version.

It's good to see Glims adding more alternatives to Google in its array of search engines - particularly Ixquick and Startpage, which I use on a regular basis. It would e even better if Glims had used the SSL versions of these engines, but now that there's a Startpage extension for Glims I can use that instead of the Glims version. Five stars for this longtime useful extension.

A player that doesn't support lossy and lossless audio formats like flac and Apple lossless is useless for me. Since clementine can't even bother to indicate exactly what formats it supports I can't bother to try it out. I'm sticking with Vox.

Sorry, MJ, I must have been making false assumptions based on the vague info given in the MU blog. I'll download Clementine now and give it a try.

The setup is kind of complicated but the music reproduction is better than Vox's, so thanks again MJ for turning me on to Clementine.

Maxthon continues to work with 1Password despite the fact that 1P v.4 no longer supports Chromium. Install the 1P beta from the Chrome Web store to keep1P v.4 functioning on Maxthon.

Unfortunately, the new version of 1Password, v. 4, does not work with Maxthon. I've switched to LastPass.

AgileBits has recently added an option to 1Password allowing us to disable the function that prevents 1P from being installed on both Maxthon and Chromium. If you've abandoned one or both of these browsers because 1P has not been working on it, try again after unclicking "Verify browser code signature" in the Advanced Preferences.

I have received a response from Chromium developers re: my bug report about Chromium no longer being supported by 1Password because Chromium's builds are not signed. "Comment #2 on issue 304535 by d...@chromium.org: 1Password 4 is no longer supporting Chromium http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=304535 "Please use Google Chrome. We don't sign chromium." In other words, Chromium is now dead for 1Password dependent users. For those who prefer not to switch to Chrome I'd suggest trying the Maxthon browser, which runs on the Chromium engine, instead. I've used it for 2 - 3 months as my default browser and found it to be preferable for my purposes to either Chrome or Chromium. The 1Password beta found in the Google Chrome store works to activate and utilize 1P4 on Maxthon's current build. I've put up a short tutorial in the Troubleshooting section of MU's Chromium page showing how to change your Chromium browser to Maxthon without losing any of your Chromium settings or Extensions. You can use the same method to transfer from Chromium to Google Chrome if you prefer.

Your Chromium or your 1Password 4? Or both?

@Dteare: Since just about everyone who's been using Chromium has done so because they don't want to use Chrome because of privacy issues I suggested Maxthon as an alternative since it supports all the Chrome extensions including 1Password but has no link to Google. I don't expect many to take my suggestion but I thought the suggestion was worth making.

@Bigboysdad: 1Password 4.0.2? I'm using 4.0 purchased from the App Store. 4.0.1 is the one downloaded from the AgileBits site. 4.0.2 may work but where did you get it?

@Bigboysdad: Never mind, I looked it up. You didn't mention you were running Chromium on IOS. Interesting that it would work there and not on OSX.

@Bigboysdad: Great theory! And if you follow it faithfully you'll never have to find out that you're wrong. The thing is, 1Password 4.0 works fine on Safari and Firefox and even Maxthon. It's Chromium that's the problem, an app I downloaded from MU not the App Store.

I 'm pretty sure Maxthon isn't Open Source and I have no idea why 1P works on it since it claims to run on the Chromium engine. But why pass on a browser that's not Open Source - ideological or practical reasons?

As of v.4.02/03 1Password no longer works on Maxthon. So that's that. I've wandered off to Firefox too.
