USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. The downloadable unregistered version of this "piece of software" gave me the menu option to disable Startupizer and restore my startup items to System Preferences. I selected this, then deleted Startupizer, placing it in the trash where it well belongs, only to discover that no startup items ha\d been put back in Sys Prefs. Are you kidding me?! At least with respect to this crucial function, this program behaves like a virus that will erase the list of startup items you spent all kinds of time setting up. You couldn't pay me to put it back on my system. A miserable, shoddy piece of code that functions like malware.
This looks promising, but Dock returns to Mavericks default on reboot. Is there a way to make the cdock's transparent setting persistent? Checked to make sure LaunchAgent and Application Support files are there. Is anyone else experiencing this? Know of a fix? Thanks. Good luck with taming Mavericks (just in time for Yosemite, no doubt). :)
Thanks, wolf. Didn't see any way to post on sourceforge (e.g., in the Tickets area), or any way to reach you by email.
BEWARE—THIS UTILITY (MOUNTAIN LION VERSION) RENDERED MY MACBOOK PRO UNBOOTABLE. Executed Cleaning and Maintenance functions, after which the MBP would boot only into a white screen. Saved by a backup clone, or this virus would have put me out of business. USE AT YOUR OWN CONSIDERABLE RISK. DO NOT USE IF YOU DON'T HAVE A WAY TO RESTORE YOUR HARD DRIVE.
Absolute garbage. Running Genuine Fractals 6 (previous name of this app) under 10.8—and the program CONSTANTLY demands restart, system reboot, reactivation. This is one of worst behaved Photoshop plugins out there. A thoroughly shameful showing by a developer who has known about these problems for years, and has not fixed them. Buy only if you're ready to cripple your workflow.
It's been so long since xGestures got an update, one has to wonder if it isn't abandonware at this point—and what a pity if it is, since it's the only elegant gestures app out there, and essential not only to my workflow but to everything I do on the Mac. The question on the mind of users, I would think, at this point, is whether or not the developer is going to resurface and provide a stability update for Mavericks, sorely needed as sometimes on boot, xGestures fails to load and returns an error. Brian—where are you?!
Appears to be broken under Mavericks.
Am posting this review as a protest to the incorporating of Ad/Shopping into Glims—a thoughtless way to generate revenues. I searched for two days, troubleshooting the sudden appearance of Offers4U and other intrusive, annoying overlay advertising on various web pages, e.g., Amazon, as well as DoNotTrackMe reporting tracking on pages that in fact had no trackers, finally narrowed this chaos down to Glims Ad/Shopping switch, which was set to On by default, a lousy thing to do to users. Developer states on the Ad/Shopping preference screen that the feature is "experimental." As far as I'm concerned, the experiment is a failure. Assailing Glims users with nag advertising is a bad idea. Not providing a conspicuous notification that this feature is on by default is an even worse one. Glims went from a well-executed and useful extension to spyware collaborator. Something to correct, one hopes, in the next version.
Didn't work for me. Macbook running 10.8.
Great app, only real replacement that's come along for Dragster. PLEASE ADD LIST LAYOUT to menu bar drop down! A long-requested and awaited feature.
