I am currently trying to update this to work on Leopard, if any devs out there have some spare time, please let me know, because I dont have much time at the moment - but really want to get this working. (Im about 90% finished, but need some help with the NSOutlineView implementation) Thanks in advance

After 6mths waiting for this to be updated, i found a tip online which allows this awesome app to work under Leopard! Just install PlugSuit, and then install SafariPlus 1.6a1 into PlugSuit. Everything is working as it should.... finally! native support would be better though, but at least it still works

Great concept but simply not compatible with latest Mac OS and Safari. Tried all the suggestions such as using the 1.6a1 version, placing in the main library and resetting permission, but still did not work. My rating is for MacOS 10.5.5 running Safari 3.2.1

ver 1.6a1: 1. Removing non-favorite cookies also removes cookies with no expiration date that belong to websites marked favorite. 2. Doing innocuous things like sorting by website in the SafariPlus window crashes Safari (3.1.2 (4525.22)) My system is a 1st gen MacBook running Tiger (10.4.11) with all Apple Software Updates applied and lots of free RAM.

works with leopard. I tested the cookies feature with Safari 3.1.2 and it works! yeah! you must go to the developers site. download the SafariPlus-1.6a1 version. after you put into the InputManagers folder, you will need to set the privileges to match. I used BatChmod. When I tried to set the privileges in the finder with Get Info and Apply to enclosed items it did not fix the privileges.

Abandonware. No updates for over a year, latest version incompatible with Leopard. It's unfortunate, because SafariPlus was the best cookie manager I've ever used; it was simple, unobtrusive, powerful, and its feature set perfectly matched the gaping hole in Safari's functionality. I just upgraded to Leopard but it feels like a horrible downgrade whenever I use Safari. I would gladly pay for a Leopard version of SafariPlus, or anything comparable. What I would really like is for Apple to incorporate SafariPlus's functionality into Safari, since it is the sort of "advanced" feature that every web browser should have.

I'm not certain, but I believe this crashes Safari on any web page with flash (and possibly moving gifs), as it crashes all the time, except on a blank page, or on animesuki. As it does this just as it starts drawing the page and then locks everything up for about a minute while it actually finishes crashing-out, I didn't feel like spending all night troubleshooting it (needless to say I got it to crash about 10 times, before I gave up). This makes it worthless, completely. You can't even really use the cookie part, since cookies are useless if you can't even get to the site to get one. If it eventually ends up working properly it'd be indispensable, and you can't beat free. What I don't understand is that Flash blocking or disabling should have been built into Safari years ago, as should minor cookie management similar to this program. Was Macromedia paying off Apple, or are the Safari developers all a bunch of ƒµ¢kíñq idiots that don't have real-world experience browsing the web? If it weren't for a few sites that require it for what I need (and that's countable on one hand, mind you), I'd remove flash completely from my Mac, treating it just like the old AOL virii that came pre-installed.

My biggest regret in switching to Leopard is the loss of this utility. If you are running Tiger, don't hesitate to use it. I can't understand why these features aren't part of OSX, and I hope the developer will make this Leopard compatible ASAP!

BY FAR the best cookie manager for Safari (pre-Leopard) - painless, automatic filtering, easy-to-set preferences, then hands-off. Apple should pay to incorporate into Safari 3. But not ready for Leopard. When SP becomes compatible with Leopard, I will pay more than the suggested donation.

v1.6a1 crashes when removing all non-favorites When clicking on the button "remove all non-favorites" in Safariplus v.1.6a1 (on a G4 iBook), the first time nothing happens, the second time Safari 3.0.4 crashes invariably. Apart from that, this beta works fine.

I use it with Leopard - and it works better than Leopard "The Disaster" itself. On my Xmas wish list: SafariPlus in sync on different Macs. All the filters I create on my iMac are not on my MacBook. This would be GREAT.

SafariPlus is the only really good, yet unobtrusive, cookie and history manager that I know of. Let us hope for a Leopard version soon. I would be happy to pay the shareware fee again just to get it operating with 10.5.x.

SafariPlus 1.5.1 works beautifully with System 10.4.10 and Safari 2.0.4. A great time-saver! SafariPlus 1.5.1 fails with System 10.4.11 and Safari 2.0.4 -- Safari will crash @ launch. SafariPlus 1.6a1 fails with System 10.4.11 and Safari 2.0.4 -- Safari will launch fine. However, while SafariPlus is chooseable off the "Safari" menu, its checkboxes for cookies don't check or uncheck, and soon the window becomes unresponsive and Safari will crash. I am not using Safari 3.0.4 because there are several SIMBL plugins that I really like, and apparently version 3 of Safari will not work at all if the SIMBL subsystem is loaded. Too bad, but I don't see a whole lot of advantages to Safari 3 anyway.

1.5.1 /should/ be used on 10.4.9 after the installation of Quicktime 7.2 and Security Update 2007-006. One of these updates broke SafariPlus 1.5 for me but updating to 1.5.1 fixed it.

I have a MacBook Pro with OS 10.4.10. With Safari 2.0.4 (419.3), I run the following: - Saft 8.3.12 - PithHelmet 2.6.7 - 1Passwd 2.3.11 The moment I installed SafariPlus 1.5.1, Safari began crashing after every launch. For the life of me, I could not figure out why. I finally 'cured' this issue by moving the SafariPlus folder to /Library/InputManagers. I still do not know what different it makes, however.

After installing OS 10.4.10, SafariPlus caused Safari to quit whenever I navigated to a website which required Safari plugins to be enabled. Uninstalling SafariPlus solved the problem.

FWIW, I just downloaded and installed the latest Apple Security Update, "Security Update 2007-006 (PowerPC)" (1.0), on my G4 iBook running OS 10.4.9, and Safari crashed upon launch repeatedly. Suspecting it was a Safari add on, I began removing them. SarariPlus was first and after removing it, Safari launched and ran normally. Hope the developer updates it. Bob

I love Safari Plus, it's favourite cookie function is a real security blanket for me, however I feel as though the flash and image management features are extraneous. More focus on the cookie management would be better. Unfortunately it's got a few drawbacks - it currently doesn't work with WebKit 420+ or Safari 3 under Leopard. Probably not an issue for most users, but as a developer it's a killer. I hope it gets an update soon.

Would be the killer app if it would disallow any flash-based pop-ups too ;-) so far, I have been using SafariBlock for that matter. But this is just me, SafariPlus does work just as advertised, it is nice and unobtrusive, easy to use (First thought I would find it within Safari preferences...) Thanks jrc Software!

I much prefer a simple application or add-on that does just what I want rather than an all-encompassing one with a huge number of prefernces, options, and panes to wade through. For those of us who are not "power users", I cannot imagine a more elegant way to handle cookies that what SafariPlus offers. Except that often I cannot get my SafariPlus preferences to stick. I select a website as a favorite, but low-and-behold the next time I open Safari it is no longer a favorite (and it gets deleted if and when I have the application set to purge non-favorties). I can't discern any pattern to when it does and doesn't work. At the moment I have no other add-ons installed for Safari. At one point I ran the "Autocomplete Always On!" script, but then my preferences for SafariPlus NEVER stuck.

SafariPlus is pretty good, but..... SafariPlus can be comparatively quick on the trigger to delete cookies. It's quick when you have set the "delete cookies when Safari quits." I prefer OnlyGoodCookies http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20685

As a long time PithHelmet user, I really have an issue with the intent and comments of this app. The developer first critically refers to PithHelment and others as "a hack" then admits that his product is too. He then complains about the cost of PithHelmet - all of $10 as donation-ware (you don't have to pay for this great program if you are too cheap or have fallen on hard economic times). The lattes or sodas he may have drunk while writing his program probably cost him more. He then states that all the cookie filtering programs on the market are no good and then casually mentions that PithHelmet does work. In fact PithHelmet has worked for me very well for a long time. If the developer wants to create some competition and give it away, perhaps as a learning experience - fine; I will perhaps take a look at it and may write an review, describing its pros and cons. But to attack other proven quality products, such as PithHelmet as an excuse or justification for writing your own, with tenuous arguments at best, seems downright rude. As such I refuse to acknowledge his efforts by downloading it. It seems to me that this developer has a "chip on his shoulder" for some reason against these products and chooses to attack them for reasons, possibly only known to him as justification for his own product. I refuse to justify that kind of attitude with my patronage. Thanks but no thanks. I will continue to stick with PithHelmet and its outstanding support.
