I've never been able to get it to work in Safari 5.0.6. Its a shame, I really used to enjoy using it. Does anyone know what might have happened to the developer? The new Glims and Safari Stand, give you most of the functionality, but I did enjoy the Saft interface. Any information on what is going on with the product would be greatly appreciated.

I have been a user of Saft for several years, and I have never minded paying for the author's work to update it for new versions of Safari, but it is certainly a nuisance to have to keep rejecting Software Update's suggestion to use Safari 5.0.6 until the Saft update appears. My only real reason to use Saft is to disable animation on the screen, which it does incompletely. Can those who know alternatives please suggest which is best for somebody who needs only this function?

I'm not sure what all the complaints are going on here.. I paid for Saft for 10.4, an upgrade fee for 10.5, and again for 10.6 - - never in between.. and frankly they were all great updates to a product I wouldn't want to use Safari without. If someone doesn't want to use this software, that's fine, but I don't see any reason to trash the developer personally. I'm happily using Saft on my Snow Leopard computer with the latest safari, and probably won't upgrade to 10.7 until a compatible version of Saft is released (a paid update or not)

Like so many others I was a loyal Saft user for many years. Now the only thing I miss is the nifty "control + drag" function that I seem unable to find elsewhere. Anyone got any ideas about that? I am using Smart Scroll and have got some of the functionality I seek...

Glims has replaced most of the functionality of SHAFT but the one feature i really miss is the right click save page as pdf. Yes, I know I can do it through the print dialogue box but it's much slower and involves more steps. Does anyone know of another plugin with this feature???

I know Glims is the way to go and all but I haven't found a way to mimic the address bar shortcuts Saft does. For example: I type "mu" and it automatically loads "www.macupdate.com", as specified by my preferences. What alternative to Saft does this? I'll keep Saft installed in the wait of finding an alternative to that particular feature.

just in case potential new users see this "update": avoid SAFT, even if you heard it was good. It really WAS good a couple of years ago, but an arrogant and non-responsive developer who wants to charge for every small update does not deserve to be supported.

TIP for former SAFT users: I FINALLY discovered how to make real bookmark separators which was one of the handy features of Saft when it actually worked and was a nifty add-on (... a long time ago). Create a bookmark name: "-" and URL: "-:-" Now if I can only find a replacement for the handy right mouse click to save a PDF (vs. print > save as pdf). And once again DON"T BUY SAFT
