What's New
Version 5.0:
  • A full recompilation has been made again as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • You must bring the application to the foreground to navigate, then you can send it to the background to display it as a wallpaper.
  • You can press the Alt key to open the links into Safari.
  • The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion:
  • Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, if you're launching the application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).
  • NB: We're not distributing our applications through the Mac App Store, because Apple's fees policy on the Mac App Store is not financially respectful of developers and small and medium companies.

A rip off.
Charging this much for slapping a badly written front end on somebody else's work is a disgrace.

AlphaOmega software are a disgrace.

Just bought this product 3 months ago (it never worked properly, and I never received requested tech support)!
Now this author wants to be paid again for this newest version.

Cute little app, but not worth money. I can't see myself actually using it as it's easier for me to just fire up Safari.
