This is freaking brilliant, yet so simple to use! I wish someone had thought of this a long time ago. Although, I think they should add some more buttons for other boolean logic possibilities.

There is no "developer" to email; the entire product is just an amalgamation of random rent-a-coder jobs and the "lead architect" who posts them neither owns a Mac nor writes software. All this thing does is inject some JavaScript into every page you load through a back door in Safari that will be closed up one day, making it even more useless than it already is. Privoxy anyone?

But that "Investor Relations" link sure does make him look like a real first class professional businessman, dunnit? Mmmm... Zits and baseball caps.

Bugs bugs bugs! Don't bother with this, it's not even worth trying. I've tried to contact the developer to report bugs before, but they don't seem to care. Buttons on web pages don't work, high resolutions images don't work, not to mention the interface is ugly as sin.

If it's not too much trouble, could you provide some actual evidence or at least some specifics about these "bugs" you're claiming here.

Great idea and it works but there is a bug which makes me uninstall it. The bug comes up when viewing high resolutions photos from clipart sites. If you try and view one of these photos in Safari its starts to preview it until it's done loading and then it just disappears. I thought maybe it downloaded it but no it just won't display the photo. I've tried to email the developer but they have not replied or fixed the problem. This has been a bug since it was first released. Please fix the bug and then I will use this software.

We are currently trying to update Xippee to work with Leopard. We believe this should be finished within 2 weeks. Thank you for letting us know about this issue.

Not sure why it won't work on your system. Could you try to download another copy and install it again? It's possible that this may fix the issue. If not, please let me know so we can try to figure out what else could cause the problem here.
