Needs to be updated, becoming a little unstable. Click on it and then select a bookmark, Safari Xtra drops out more than it used to.

A load group into a tabbed Safari browser, instead of separate windows, would be great. The search function does not seem to work for me. Still trying...

How badly I would like for this to work! Sadly it does not....... Once preferences are set and "Apply Changes" are made....... CRASH!! Every single time. Deleting prefs is the only way to restart........ but, then, what is the point of having a preference file if you cannot set them?!

Works as advertised. Seems to be well ahead of other similar types of apps in this category. The only thing I can say is incredibly annoying is....that for something that is "Donationware", you get a constant pop-up window whenever you launch the app which kindly "reminds" you that the program is "donationware" and that your support is appreciated. You know, that is fine if you want to get some donations, but don't make me sit through it and have to click OK, EVERY time the app loads! This is more like NAGWARE instead of Donationware. If that silly little annoyance is removed, I would be more likely to actually donate to the cause.

I couldn't get the search feature to work at all. The Web search searches the wrong site, rather than the selected one, whilst the people search gave no results, though to be honest I'm not sure what it's searching (Address Book?).

It also tends to crash - and I have to delete the prefs file to get it to work again.

However, in terms of features it's well ahead of anything similar I've seen, especially the ability to switch between browsers.

I find that his application is a delight to use and is very useful. No glitches at all, loads perfectly - so handy to have the bookmarks available all the time. Love the 'load group' feature. Well Done!

I found this app very annoying, although promising. It is a full blown app, not just a menu bar item, which means you have to launch it (or set it in your login items) which also means an icon in your dock all the time, and if you use ASM or X-Assist, the icon is in there too. The full color icon in the menu bar was ugly, but that has been fixed now.

Make this a "real" menu bar item and I give it 5 stars across the board.

This small freeware is in a big way boosting our beloved Safari. Explorer is a snail in comparison. Viva Safari.
