The good news is this still works on the latest version of Mavericks. The bad news is the developer's website domain is up for sale with no further info.

The link to the developer no longer works. Here is the URL that does still work: http://pawn-soft.com/index.php There still is no update for Snow Leopard unfortunately.

DOES NOT WORK ON SNOW LEOPARD! From the developer's web site: "I'm sorry to announce that, due to a OS bug, Startrail does not work on Snow Leopard. To be a little more specific, there is a certain case in which apps stop receiving mouse movements (if you want me to be more technical, please email me). Obviously this is the case for Startrail. I filed the bug to Apple, but since it is a very specific bug, I don't know when or wether it will be fixed. I'm very sorry, I tried some workaround but none of them seems to work. So please be advised that if you intend to upgrade to Snow Leopard, Startrail will not work anymore. If you bought a license for Startrail after Snow Leopard release, please email me for a refund."

Excellent on Macbook pro 1.8/2gb ram. Non-intrusive. I have no problem with the dispersion of the stars it lets me know exactly where my cursor is at any time. I especially like the color change. Hope this is ported to the upcoming 10.5 system. I wish there would be something else to happen on mouse clicks...that would be cool.

Definitely a keeper! More & more options each update! Still rock solid on my iMac Dual Core (MacInel) with OSX 10.4.10 v1.1 Excellent work! P.s. Still a minor cosmetic issue of the "About" window hiding behind other open windows. But so minor that it's no biggee!
