This extension required that the "Block Pop-Up Windows" function in Safari be turned OFF. If you like pop-up windows, give it a shot. It seems to me that there should be a better way to accomplish the task than turning off something that so many people use 24-7. But I'll make this a comment and leave the rating to others.

I'm sure it wasn't intentional, but the description of Weppy implies that you need this plug-in set to render WebP images in most any browser you run on your Mac. Not so.

Here is a Google web page with which you can test your browser(s) ability to display them.
http://code.google.com/speed/webp/gallery.html

Safari Version 5.0.2 (6533.18.5) on my MBP displays these images just fine.

I'll assume that there are other Safari versions and other browsers in use which do not display WebP images, but try the address above. Also, installing the plug-ins, which I tried anyway, did not cause any problem, so please consider this comment a basic FYI.

DRONKERT is correct. Sorry for the gross oversight. If I could delete the comment, I would.

This looks promising in function, but no English translation makes it difficult to use. Maybe when the American Markets are open we can figure out more.

The product and the website pages are not complicated. Hoping the developer is working on an English version of both, including markets & symbols.

Worse. 0.1.2 Did nothing but launch. Got an application menu - empty; a dock menu - nothing there. No menu in Menu bar.

I started using Google Reader when the quality Feed Readers for Mac got greedy. I was a bit wary, but so far I'm happy with this choice of an online reader, and it's partly because of Reader Notifier.

This thing saves a lot window work. Plenty of preference options and flexibility. Never had a crash, never annoying.

TIP: For the newer Mac user, you can have Reader Notifier run at startup by going to the
System Preferences>Accounts>select your account>select Login Items tab -- then add it manually to the list. (All of this is thanks to no dock icon or preference choice, but not a big deal.)

Recommended to anyone using Google Reader. It's one of those little free things that makes life a tiny bit easier.

As a former Unix/SunOS/Solaris System Admin, I am addicted to backups. Unix is the power behind the MacOS X systems, and although very stable, people still manage to damage and otherwise destroy files. Backups of your stuff, as George Carlin would call it (RIP), is more important than you know until you destroy something yourself. With that in mind, I'm always looking for backup options.

Since the release of Leopard, Time Machine is the answer for the every-day, average user of Macs. However, Apple has a BAD habit of making too many decisions in your behalf. Time Machine lacks flexibility in backup scheduling. It's once per hour, manual (hidden in the Menu Bar menu) or nothing at all. Enter TimeMachineEditor.

TimeMachineEditor gives you the options the Time Machine should have had in the first place. Hey, this is free, trying to make life a smoother sail for you. You can always turn it off, but all Time Machine users should give this a try.

*I am in no way connected to anything directly or indirectly associated with TimeMachineEditor. I'm only a very satisfied user a=of a great little utility. I also use iDrive and CCC. I sleep very well.

To start, I agree with all comments that have come before this one. I don't think this "developer" knows RAM from disk space, or was it simply a misstatement?

I use AppTrap, a Preference Pane, and am very satisfied. I download and try out many apps every week, creating lots of preference files etc. AppTrap finds these files when I delete an app and asks if I'd like to delete them as well. These files are what can eventually eat up a lot of disk space.

Of course, if you are using only 20% of your hard drive, who cares? :-)

THis little ditty works like a charm. I downloaded an MP3 ringtone from Mobiles24.com then opened iPhoneRing Importer, navigated to my new MP3 file and whamo! It even placed the file with the correct suffix into the correct folder. All I had to do then was sync the iPhone.

An English localization would be helpful.

This is a good application. rated 3 for French only, otherwise all 5s.
