The developer, Jackson Myers, after getting more details of the problem from me, sent a newer version to test. It fixed the problem I was having, and he'll release it as version 3.2 I'm raising the overall rating to 4 stars. I misses the 5-th star only because the configuration options on the back pane (and the UI*) aren't as self-explanatory as they could be, and "Reset Preferences" gives no warning that you'll lose all the URLs you've added to the list of webcams. * For example, did you know that left- and right-arrow will advance the image to the previous/next camera on your list? I haven't seen it documented anywhere and only discovered it by chance!

Auto cycle isn't working for me (ver. 3.1 on Snow Leopard 10.6.6). I see the caption bar turn red to indicate the image is updating, and it stays stuck there forever.

I Agree with the Developer.It is NOT his fault.EarthCam owns the Friday's WebCam and the Vegas one. But the Dashboard App works well so I was wrong and I am giving it 5Stars because it does what it is supposed to do!

OK I admit for what it is (Free) It is Ok but it is missing The cams I liked the best and that I think were popular with a lot of users, Friday's WebCam,Las Vegas wedding Chapel which had some interesting moments.I think that EarthCam as the author stated pulled out these. I guess they wanted MONEY!
