COMMENT: Macupdate is wrong when it states that this app requires Mac OS X 10.5.6. I ran it under 10.4.11.

Wow, this app is exactly what I have been looking for. I do not like the new tab bar or the new progress indicator. Thanks you, Safari Buddy, for letting me make Safari better than ever!

Can you add Sparkle updates and remove the unnecessary menus?

This app is the best out there. The "competition" doesn't even come close.

I gave 5 stars before, so this is just a comment. :)

I guess I can't complain as it is free but I prefer Safari 4 Modifier - it has more options and looks better (yes, looks matter to women too, not just guys)

I would like to know how something made with REALBasic looks good.

This app is the best out there. Great work, developer!

Works as it should. What really annoys me about Safari and I'm surprised Apple hasn't fixed this yet, but the option to automatically close the download window upon completion. It would be great if Safari 4 Buddy had this option.

Beautiful! Adds exttremely useful functions to Safari 4; functions that Safari 4's own developers should have included.
Kudos to Swoon.net for coming up with this and offering it for free.

Perfect! I wish Apple would build this into a advanced customization preference window, so we didn't have to rely on generous coders to allow us a way to make Apple products work the way WE want them to, not how Apple dictates.

Syzzygy had trouble on 28 Apr 2010
Download link gives a 404 error.....requested URL not found.
Developer's website does not show Safari 4 Buddy; it looks like this app has been abandoned. Too bad, it looked like a handy little Utility.
