Thank you for providing a version for the 10.9 devs. I don't know how wise it is to use a PrefPane with... um... special APIs, but even though I should be maintaining a pristine OS environment, I won't run without MenuMeters.

As a side note, I notice that under the "Similar Software" portion of this page, iStat Menu has a dozen or so votes, whereas on the iStat Menu page, MenuMeters has 117 votes.

I'd say that's about right.

Thank you for keeping it free.

It would be less than useful for others to read a review based on just one use of DfontSplitter (0.4.1), so I offer this as a comment only, and specifically as a comment directed to the application's developer:

Bless you.

If you're running system 10.3.8 or later -- perhaps an even earlier system version, I can't say -- there's no need for Belkin's software. Apple has (very quietly) added universal UPS support into OS X. The only hardware requirement on the part of the UPS is that it can communicate via USB.

Here's the procedure: Attach the USB cable between the UPS and the Macintosh. Go to the Energy Saver preference pane, and configure a few new menu settings. That's it. No restart or logout required.

Extractor URL is not at all the worst piece of software in the list of all the programs I have ever used. Second worst, possibly. The worst caused a kernel panic, and at least this is stable. Nevertheless, it didn't do anything useful and easily ranks in the bottom five of my list in terms of pointless frustration.

I thought Extractor URL sounded like a handy way for my GUI oriented clients to extract URLs from email and text files without needing to learn about regexps and the command line.

It's still a useful concept. This product doesn't provide it.

I'm so used to reading comments at MacUpdate and VersionTracker stating "This app is trash," and "This program sucks," that I tend to ignore single incidents as meaningless griping from clueless users.

Anonymous, I apologize for putting you in that category. Let me make it up to you by reiterating your very good advice: Don't waste your time or your bandwidth on this turkey.
