Does what it says, and the added touch of being able to edit the URLs and even throw in a script as the action is sweet (and really only limits what can be done to short-scripting abilities). A couple of issues with the 1.1 release that were corrected by the programmer within 2 days of the first email being sent.

And for someone to rate it low because of an issue they don't even contact the programmer about should be blocked from being able to write reviews! (it took using a brand new user account on the programmer's computer to replicate my issue, so he does what it takes to fix the problem if you give him enough details)
[Version 1.1.1]

I can't get it to start sharing. Console logs an error of 'dyld: incompatible cpu-subtype' then an 'iphotod crashed' entry. That is also all the information shown in the crash log. I am running 10.4.2 fully updated on a G3 iMac.
[Version 1.3]

Thank you for the offer. I wondered about that since there is no minimum CPU listed in the requirements. As a side thought, don't only G3 versions work on MacIntels and Rosetta? And I'm sending an email off now! Thank you very much for the service! This program looks so much better than any other solution I've seen yet!

Or you could just use Witch by the same author as Butler. It's free, and doesn't use any screen real estate. There are six different choices for what you can see based on all or front app, and whether or not the window is minimized. It's prefpane takes any key combination. And I'm not associated with either of these programs in any way other than using them...

In regards to the video feature, under the 'Advanced' tab in the preferences is the option turning on "Play Videos:" with the options of "in the main window","in a separate window", and "full screen".

Hmm, interesting... :-)
[Version 4.8]

I am having an issue with this version that I have contacted the programmer about. No matter what the preference pane (or even the preference file) have selected as the mailto: destination, it always tries to send mail via Yahoo! mail. I really hope this gets fixed as this is the exact program I've been waiting ages for!

Programmer has corrected my stated issue with version 1.1.1. It will still display the default if System Preferences is closed then the Webmailer prefpane is opened, but the program's preferences are still saved and active.

And one day later, the developer delivers the completely corrected app to my email! Gotta say, the program does what it says (completely now) and the developer is incredibly responsive! Now on to my 5 star review...
