Nice program - but I some sites don't have icons that you can click on and choose to make the thumbnail. Needs a way of taking a min-screenshot and using that as the image.

It's a lovely idea. I'd love to use it. The only thing that doesn't seem right is the oversized PC-esque navigation arrows.

Is there a way for a beginner to hack in to the extension and replace the existing arrow files with a simple small grey arrow - something like this? http://mokokoma.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/triangle-grey2.gif

To delete a site click Edit and then move the mouse cursor over the site to delete. You will see the red delete button, click it and you are done.

Oops, so you can. I had the bottom of the window off screen and didn't see the edit buttion.

Windows rearranged to my tastes now and very nice too.

One more gripe, I'm sorry to say: it seems a pity that a whole new strip of grey has to be added to the Safari window merely to accomodate a small button on the left saying 'add to thumb site'. Could this not be accomplished in a more screen-economic manner, perhaps sitting next to the thumb sites activate button in the main menu bar?

You can hide the bar with the only button using "Hide Thumb Sites Bar" command in the View menu. When it is hidden, in the new version 2.0 you can still add sites using the command in popup menu. It should be present in the popup menu for any site.

I really like this and thank the developer for it.

Be nice if you could rearrange the thumbs though- maybe in the next version?

You can rearrange the site dials. Click Edit button at the bottom of the page, and then you may drag dials around. Click Done when you rearranged them as you wished.

Just installed version 2 and can't add anything to the Thumb Sites. Version 1 worked flawlessly. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still no joy.
