On the dev's website it says "to install this app on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or OS X 10.9 Mavericks, please disable GateKeeper before the installation. Right-clicking and choosing Open will display error with GateKeeper enabled." Hmm, I'm not keen on the idea of turning of Gatekeeper, so I think I'll wait until the app is code-signed before re-installing it.

Everyone be cautious and report back if it ends up being a trojan.
The site is blocked by OpenDNS and is being reported as adware.
Maybe the author chose poor hosting, or maybe it's got spyware in it.
Just a heads up;

Sorry, but www.blazingtools.com is blocked on this network.

Running Mavericks when I try to install this it says the Install Apple Script is damaged and suggests I delete it. Something that needs to be updated?

This is exactly what I have been looking for. I sometimes have files I want to delete rather than send to the trash, but I don't need to securely overwrite them 7 or 35 times as the "secure delete" apps do. Delete Without Trash installs two services that are accessible via the contextual menu, and optionally via system-wide hotkeys.

Without a hotkey like SHIFT+DELETE this tool is useless

You can add any hotkey you want in System Prefs > Keyboard > Services.

A little but useful app. Does not eat system resources, runs only by demand. I used to delete the files I don't want to Trash (let say some huge files or just files I need to get rid of) using Terminal command, now it will be more efficient. Thanks for this app!
