Since my last posting about this app, which described strange messages popping up, the developer has worked with me to resolve the issue, something he speedily and cheerfully managed to do.
This new update, v 1.4, is totally free of such problems and works just as it should. In addition, its been jollied up with favicons and many useful new features. Note that many of these are only available in the 'pro' version, which costs a tad less than $10. But, if you regularly work with lots of webpages and have a desktop cluttered with their icons, you'll be more than happy to pay the shareware fee. (But the free version does a perfectly good job too!)
I love this little app and wonder how I managed without it before. Thanks for it, dev.
