I must admit, I never expected this one time category king to see another update so gave up on it ages ago.

If developments keeps up I might just dust off that old license, which works so thank you dev for not making fools of us all by updating and then charging for the "new" version of iGetter. Hopefully these updates become more frequent and I find a need for the app again as this was always the most reliable DL manager for OS X imo.

Good DL manager but still no support for the most recent versions of Google Chrome (it's my main browser) ... and Chrome v22 has been released some two months ago.
Please don't tell me that Chrome developers broke the plugin, they dropped Carbon support because those API are old and will be soon deprecated even by Apple, they were mostly intended for the Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X API transition, all recent apps use Cocoa.

iGetter v2.9.1 adds support for Chrome v22.0.1226.0 and up. See release notes above. You have either used an older version of iGetter or for some reason your Chrome components are not updated properly. You can type in Chrome "about:plugins" and then "about:extensions" (without quotes) to check what versions of iGetter components are in use. If you still have issues, please, contact us with info about your iGetter, Chrome and OS X versions here: http://www.igetter.net/contactus.html

Sorry, I didn't notice the new version and was still using v2.9.0.
Everything works fine now with Chrome 23.0.1271.40 beta.

In Principle, I agree, but it's not like they've been extremely fast to adapt to Lion or Firefox 5+.
3 months can be quite long. Anyway, I'll be ready to pay soon.

iGetter support states "Current iGetter version should work fine on Lion. However, v2.8.7 is not compatible with Safari 5.1 and Firefox 5". Since Safari 5.1 is part of Lion this means that it does not work yet. Presenta offers a silly workaround which includes turning off the features that I suspect most users took advantage of to make iGetter useful. Here is a link to the Presenta Bulletin Board regarding Lion:

Does what I want, i.e. 'only' downloading for Safari and other browsers.

By the way, if anyone's wondering about the not really stellar overall rating of 3.5 stars: the 1-star ratings are on page start on page 3 or 4, back in 2005. iGetter never got to v.3, so it's all accumulated since I-don't-know-how-early.

Current stable version of Chrome is 21.0.1180.75 (from 08/08/12). Most probably you're using a dev/canary build of Chrome/Chromium. Type "about:extensions" (without quotes) and also "about:plugins" in Chrome's address bar and check iGetter extension/plugin versions.

If you've ever installed iGetter extension for Chrome manually, you need to update it from the following link: http://www.igetter.net/iGetterExtension.crx

Make sure that you only start iGetter v2.9. In other words you need to delete all older versions of iGetter from your machine, so Mac OS X can't accidentally find and start some older version (by a browser's command, etc.).

Third line of the "What's new" section for v.2.9 states:
"Optimized for Firefox v14 and Chrome v22 browsers"
I specified the version in my comment, so — not "most probably", but exactly.
I never installed the extension manually, only via iGetter prefs.

The last build of Chrome that we tested before releasing iGetter v2.9 is 22.0.1204.0, which worked fine.

However, we now found that Chrome's developers intentionally with the last revisions of M22 have broken again our plugin. Problem starts from Chrome revision 149642. This means that from Chrome v22.0.1226.0, iGetter v2.9 plugin will not work. We will create a plugin that complies to Google's whim and will include it in the next iGetter release. Note that our plugin is not made specifically for Chrome, all Mac browsers use it without any problem.

I love iGetter, but ever since Tiger I can't get right-click contextual menus to work with Safari anymore at all. So unfortunately, I can't use it until this is fixed.

Seems as tho PithHelmet and iGetter don't like each other. Safari contextual menus don't work if you have iGetter contextual menus activated, so make sure that's turned off if you use both apps.

I hope this is fixes, because I really miss iGetter's Download All feature.
