Actually, please note that Globe Trotter is a 100% new program that happens to do the same thing as an older program of mine, called jSearch. Functionality is similar, but the product itself is brand spanking new. It even has a different icon. MacUpdate for some reason insists upon merging the Globe Trotter listing in with the older jSearch one.

And that reason would be that you posted to the review thread here for JSearch (earlier today), telling everyone not to download JSearch and instead download Globe Trotter as a replacement for JSearch. (It would have been better to advise us of the change before posting in the reviews) So, rather than delete the old JSearch page and thereby lose your download count here at MU, we simply edited the JSearch page content to your new app, Globe Trotter. And, after all, you did want us to delete the old JSearch page. It's gone.

Please note that reviews after this comment are for "jSearch" which is what this Globe Trotter product used to be called.

Why would anyone pay 50 cents for this when there's Butler (donationware, does this plus much, much more), not to mention other FREE utilities that do the exact same thing and nothing else.

If you have any problems with no search sites showing up, please delete your preferences file. Quit jSearch, then go to your home directory, then Library, then Preferences and delete com.thomason.jsearch.plist. Then re-launch the program and you'll be fine. Also, please note that the initial software launch can take a few moments as it is trying to cache the favicons from the various search sites. Depending upon the speed of your connection, this may take a while. Subsequent launches will be instantaneous, since it will have the icons cached.

Doesn't launch for me either, or at least I can say that no jSearch icon shows up in the menu bar. Too bad since, at $2, jSearch would be much easier on the purse.

Now that's peculiar, since 1.0.4 was checked on 3 machines before its release. For the future - please email me directly if there are bugs or whatnot and I'll happily help to address them, but without further details, I may be stumped right now.

A new, properly compiled, version of jSearch 1.0.3 is now available. It should run without any problems. I'm sorry for any inconvenience or hassles this may have caused.
