Wow -- Burn Version 2.4.1u (22) is a total lifesaver for me on a Tiger 10.4.11 ppc g5 and I am very grateful for the developers who made this simple but extremely terrific app.

Here's why: all my burn tools have recently gone completely wacko including Toast Titanium, PathFinder and most especially the flaked out now-completely unstable and flaky Finder -- although both Finder & Toast have worked okay previously. But starting in recent weeks, all three have started to freeze, stall, unending spinning beach balls -- I have wasted several blank DVDs and hours upon hours unsuccessfully trying to fix the problems (with all the usual tools and reinstalls) -- I am now even encountering problems with Finder to create/modify/add to/list contents for a simple burn folder. Until now.

Hooray for Burn Version 2.4.1u (22)! It worked flawlessly (so far)!

[Again, this is on a ppc G5 using Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger -- others may have different experiences. I'm gonna try it on an older 10.3.9 Panter g3 imac soon and will try to remember to report back re: that experience.]

again: My super muchas gracias thanks to the developers

Just an added note: Burn can seem to be a little slow and might show not responding in Activity Monitor for a bit, but so far for me it always comes through, just be a little patient.

Try Cocoa Cookies which has a search feature

V.4 won't work in Safari 2 -- unfortunately I need to downgrade to Version 3 again because we keep getting this error message:

Safari 2.0.4 (v419.3) has not been tested with the plugin ForgetMeNot 4.0 (v8). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer for further information.

Anyone know where the earlier version can be obtained?

Just keeps getting better; great support, responsive developer(s). A++++

uh - no.

the stupid countdown / splash window must be at the very front or it continually re-starts the shareware reminder 'countdown' before you can even try it.

bad idea. who cares to even try it after that annoyance. especially when there are better cheaper or better more features for the same price

Domino 5.0 not working. does nothing. opens & big black box -- no responses to clicking anything . nothing happens. zip zero zilch. no support at site -- are there known incompatibilities?

clicking the X in the big black box doesn't quit/close the app either

at their website you can't reach them because their crappy contact form submission doesn't work either

Can I give them and their stupid game ZERO STARS?

i don't understand whether you have to have this going simultaneously with safari or what?

how do you actually use it?

Nothing against inquisitor but I prefer acidsearch (pozytron.com) because it meets my needs better. example: "Google this Site" is part of the pull down menu.

if inquisitor had that and some of the more straightforward features of acid search then it would be more useful/efficient.

As it is now, for me and my search patterns, AcidSearch just seems snappier and more efficient.

It is somewhat useful but it doesn't sort correctly or completely. This would be even better if it had a filter function box like FIREFOX.

You might want to also check out Deep Vacuum although it has confusing options when you get the right combination it works well.

What has not worked well for me: Speed Download.

SiteSucker used to be great but now not so much because hasn't stayed up with OS X upgrades.

doesn't respond at all to arrow keys or any keys on imac g5
[Version 3.4.1]

UPDATE: got it working -- sort of -- it hangs on a regular basis AND it adds multiple copies (like FIVE) of itself to the log-in / startup items in the accounts system preferences.

dangit -- what's up w/that? wish this were a better program -- like i said, good idea, but BUGGY
