Would be nice to see more frequent updates. The current version of NetShred supports Firefox up to v24 but now we are on v27.

I have several questions about this software...

1) The review/comments section here hasn't been added to for 2 years... why?
2) FireFox 14 was a June 2012 release. It is now March 2013... almost 9 months later with no indication that NetShred has been updated to consider FireFox versions 15-19.
3) Considering MacApp store prices... the price does seem high... it might be a better marketing plan to reduce the price slowly and increase the customer base giving more exposure to additional developer products and reducing such criticism and hopefully raising profitability.

I realize FireFox's 6 week update cycle is quick, but people generally want to be current especially for security purposes.

Perhaps the developer could weigh in on how they are keeping current with FireFox's 6 week release cycle?

I have been using NetShred for many years without any problems. All the more disappointing then when I discovered that Version 4.7.4 was not shredding my history in Firefox 13.0. More disappointing still when my report took three days to produce an (unsigned) one-line response asking me "Which version of Firefox?". It's now a week since my original report and not another word. I don't necessarily expect instant solutions but a polite "Thanks for telling us - we're working on it now" would not go amiss.

$24.95 will get me almost a pound of real fresh-caught salmon at Whole Foods. I'd rather have that one memorable evening before poverty than have to look at that morbid, depressing, eldritch (thrown in for HP Lovecraft fans) and incomprehensible icon.

I know, I know. The icon is not the app. But I wouldn't care if this app did handsprings and mowed the lawn. Not on MY Mac.

yes, over a year old post ... but just wanted to add that you CAN apply your own icon by just copying and pasting one over it (and if youre adventurous replace the .icns resource itself) ... pretty easy stuff. I use a WALL·E (the Pixar movie) icon as a replacement and it looks great and is quite fitting. just sayin'

After 20 years of Mac Use on occasion there is a program which comes along that does a job and seems to do it so well that superlatives are almost inadequate. NetShred falls into that exclusive club according to this user. The developer states basically set it up and " forget-it ". Very true.

I have one or two minor suggestions.

1) as more ways of protecting ourselves which NetShred could accomplish we are advised of same or updates come through.
2) This falls into the area of personal preference. For me Dock real estate is precious. So if in a future upgrade it could run but not be seen. In my case I have accomplished this, but can bring it back up should I need to. But like I said above generally never needed.

Just Great !

NetShred X is the Internet privacy software that is easy, fast and cleaner. Easy because it runs automatically - you don't have to remember to use it.

Your Web browser stores copies of the images and text that you see when on the internet. This information can be recovered by anyone with access to your computer. These Internet tracks - browser cache, history, download cache, quicktime cache, favicons, cookies and email cache, trash, spam and junk mail - not only potentially compromise your privacy, they also take up a lot of disk space. Clearing your cache, throwing these files in the trash, or deleting them will not remove the file contents from the hard drive - it just removes the file name from the directory, leaving the data intact and recoverable. To dispose of these Internet tracks, you need an Internet eraser to erase them so they can't be recovered.
