Free version (~5 features) seems to be a crippled Pro Version (~25 features). The Pro version is ~$50. that includes 1 year of updates. Future updates must be purchased at a cost of ~$10 per year.

Yup! It requires Java installed in your OS X. Apple yanked Java out of OS X for a reason called 'security'. Remember to never surf the web with the Java Internet Plug-in installed. Not ever.

This hint is useless as no actual browser on macOS supports the java plugin. ;-)

Works well, and quickly, but only does one page at a time unless you upgrade to the Pro license. (The license is a subscription for one year of updates.) It is great to have WCAG validation, and the reports are great. Even if the free version only does one page, you can learn to improve your coding.It will go in my toolbox solely for the accessibility tools.

What is the story on this? I see it's version 8. But only 137 downloads? No reviews or comments. Sketchy description. Can MacUpdate staff confirm this is legit?
