The screenshot shown appears to predate Sun's acquistion of VirtualBox. There's a more recent screenshot on their site:

As the screenshot shows, audiophiles are always listening to Taylor Swift...

It's great to see a an actively-maintained branch of CotVNC. It has some nice improvements over the original (while keeping the unbeatable price).

Oddly, when downloading what's labelled as 3.11 from Bjango's site, what I get when I install is 3.12...
[Version 3.11]

Doesn't import account info from where?

As for price, obviously software authors can charge whatever they think their work is worth, but for forty bucks, I can't see how this will challenge Postbox (which does have POP3 and RSS, etc.).

And the name and icon are strangely reminiscent of Textmate, to me...

I'm a happy Firefox user myself (now on 4.0b3), but I think you're overlooking some of the things that make Chrome different. Most obvious is running each tab in a separate process, so that a plugin crashing one tab doesn't take the whole browser down. Firefox is now doing a more limited version of this, but there's no doubt that Chrome's implementation of this feature is well thought out. There are some nice small touches, too - the extensions manager is a tab (FF 4 has adopted this approach), the status bar disappears if there's nothing going on down there, etc. I would certainly recommend Chrome (or Opera) over Safari, if I had a friend who didn't want to use Firefox.

Yes, of course, and Chrome doesn't have extensions to rival Better Privacy, Beef Taco, Ghostery, NoScript, etc. But I would guess that most users of other browsers, FF included, make plenty of visits to And just watch the traffic on a LAN to subdomains - every google app sends massive amounts of traffic to them, not just Chrome.

Working nicely for me on 10.6, but not happy with the latest MacFuse (2.1.5) on 10.5. I'm not sure why 0.0.7 is being shown as new, as it was released Dec. 24, 2009...

Well, most of the tracking that Chrome does involves traffic to various subdomains of, and Iron still seems to be doing quite a bit of that, so I'd say they need to do a little more work on sanitizing the codebase...

Actually, Sigil is now at version 02.2 - it's hosted on Google Code:
[Version 0.1.8]

Requires a restart? Are they joking? I don't even use any of the iLife apps...

I've tried downloading the 1.0.2 plugin from three different places, but they seem to install the 0.86 version of the plugin. Am I missing something?
[Version 1.0.2]

It may well run under Tiger (10.4.11 in my case), but the .pkg refuses to install.
[Version 0.11.3]
