[Version 4.7]

While it doesn't fully work in X.7+ it does still allow you to add spaces to the dock so you can group apps. This is still the best way to do that -- as sad as that may be given the last time it was updated.

Now, for previous systems this little modification works extremely well =)

Excellent browser! Not the fastest (Opera 19.x is), but it is stable & better than Safari

For those who have CPU usage issues, you can use XSlimmer to remove unnecessary code from the browser and it will eliminate the CPU usage problem. It's not the only app. to have this issue.

By far the fastest browser on the Mac. (running with X.9)... For those who don't think so, they don't have it configured to run at its best quite frankly.

The one issue I have with it -- as many other have already stated -- is the disappearance of the bookmarks bar & panels. It made the upgrade from version 12.x a real pain. Resorting all my bookmarks into additional folders to make them all fit in the bookmarks bar took at least an hour (on a wide screen no less!). It would have been much better if the developers had left the bookmarks handling alone and also left the panels function in place from version 12.x.

The above said, this version is leaps and bounds above version 12.x. Yeah there are some differences that take some getting used to, but I haven't run into anything that I can't live with. And folks have developed bookmarks managers for Opera that work nicely enough and continue to improve. That is the only issue I have with this new version. Haven't found a site it doesn't work on -- in fact, it brought back functionality to sites I couldn't access with 12.x. It may be "light on features" but there are many extensions written for it which are amazing and easy to use, easy to install, easy to disable or uninstall, etc.

This utility works best with the machine booted off a diff't volume than the one you're looking to repair. That said, there are two things DW excels at, from a tech's 25+ yrs. of experience, repairing directories and permissions. This is mainly what I use it for on my own and clients' machines because most utilities will not allow permission repair on a volume the machine isn't running off of, DW does and does it extremely well. Would I pay almost $100 for those two features.... Absolutely NOT. As you can use the better TechTool to replace the directory (plus it has a protection feature which backs up that directory periodically) and TechTool or Drive Genius can deal with permissions while the machine is running off the volume being checked. As a tech., I do have DW in my tool box, but it certainly isn't the only tool in there nor is it the best.

As a support tech. I can honestly say TechTool is an indispensable part of my tool box. It has saved hard drive contents where other utilities have failed --- including DiskWarrior, Drive Genius, and Apple's Disk Utility (all of which are also part of my tool box). The hardware tests in TechTool are the best around. The protection tools have saved many of my clients' work from destruction/loss many times over. I've been using TechTool on every version of OS X without issues. There are SOME things that other utilities do better, I'll be honest about that, such as directory repairs & permission repairs (DiskWarrior is superior in those areas), but for preventing losses it is by far the best. It gets better with each new version, though. For diagnosing hardware problems there is nothing better!

These don't work on 10.5.6.
[Version 1.1]

This doesn't work under 10.5.6. System sees them as applications and they don't show up as dividers in the dock at all.

Can't even download to test the 64bit update. So, pretty well worthless.

Use Docker instead. Doesn't add glowing separators, but it adds spaces in the dock so you can group apps. together. It also allows you to add documents to the dock where you want them to be. Better yet, it actually works.
