Try Steer Mouse as an alternative to this. I just got an MX Revolution, and after trying LC I was back to Steer Mouse within 5 minutes.

I'm so glad to see development of OmniWeb picking up again. I used it as my default browser for a while, and the reason I stopped was because development was extremely slow, and it was always lagging months behind Safari in its WebKit version. Now that development has picked right back up, I'm going to give OmniWeb another run. The 5.9.2 SneakyPeak builds are already using Safari 4's WebKit, and they are blazing fast. The things that set OmniWeb apart for me are its superior control over browsing, particularly site preferences, and the tab side-bar.

I'm very pleased with this app on the whole. It's never caused problems for any of my apps, and I like having a good blocker for Safari that's not an Input Manager. If you find it's not blocking enough ads, enable the extra filters that come with GB and check on its web page for more. There is now a filter posted there that covers a bunch of stuff the default filters don't. The only issue I have is that if you're running Little Snitch's network filter all the time, every web page you try to visit goes to it through GB and so isn't included in any browser exception rule. This can be a pain, but since I don't use LS that much, it's not a big deal for me.

Awesome plugin. This update adds a ton of features and options that I'm really glad to see. I also love that this is a WebKit plugin instead of an Input Manager, so there's less risk of instability and incompatibility with new browser versions. Thanks to the devs.

This would undoubtedly be a useful little tool, but I feel compelled to point out that there's another free app called SmartSleep that can be set to automatically revert to the slower sleeping method (writes contents of memory to disk) when the battery is below 20%, which is, IMO, a little safer than risking losing anything you may have forgotten to save.

A nice update to an excellent app. This is by far the best of all the multiple clipboard apps I've tried.

I'm a little confused, though, as to why the developer released a series of 1.1 betas then suddenly jumped to 2.0. Oh well, it's apparently a free update for 1.x licence holders, though it doesn't seem to say that anywhere.

Very nice plugin. Far more versatile than the default PDF viewer in Safari. The inability to use the scroll wheel is a bit of a nuisance, but it does have grab scrolling, which means you don't have to go to the scroll bar whenever you want to move the window. In conclusion, I'll take the additional features and live without the scroll wheel. Thanks to the dev for making this plugin free for non-commercial use.

I really like SafariStand, but it seems to be conflicting a little with Glims (i.e. inexplicable crashing of Safari 4 that only occurs when both are installed). Stand still offers some very nice features that Glims doesn't, but if I must choose only one, I think it will have to be Glims. Here's to hoping the developer of one or both of these plugins addresses compatibility issues.

Opera is functionally very impressive, but no matter how hard I try, I can't get past its disgusting Mac interface. I'd like to give Opera a more serious spin, so I really hope the interface sees some improvement in the future. Also, I don't know how easily solvable this is, but the developers of 1Password say that Opera compatibility is impossible due to its architecture. Allowing the inclusion of such a popular add-on probably wouldn't hurt Opera's popularity on the Mac platform. For me, lack of 1Password in a browser pretty much precludes it from default use.

This is an excellent plugin that has made Saft completely redundant. It brings essential features to Safari, especially single-window mode, session saving, and enhanced searching, at no cost and with very active development. The work by the Glims developers in regards to the Safari 4 beta was, in my opinion, beyond reproach. Basic compatibility was achieved the same day and the more troublesome features were fully functional within a week. There are paid plugins that make you wait longer than this (especially PithHelmet). Glims is also very stable for an InputManagers plugin.

I combine Glims with GlimmerBlocker and Click-to-Flash to round out my Safari browsing experience.
