I formerly used this software, but I see it has never been updated to work on Intel processors without PPC support. In other words, it won't run under OS X 10.7 Lion. Please consider updating!
[Version 2.1]

The developer's website is now dead. Too bad; this was a nice application.
[Version 4.0.3]

This WAS a great app, before it was acquired and left to die by current developer. The website of the developer has not been updated in a long time, and I cannot figure out how to get support. The website forum is down, and the developer contact info I haven't been able to find.

The biggest problem I have with this software, and it's HUGE, is that it keeps deleting parts of my posts! UNBELIEVABLE, but true. I discovered it when I went back to my latest entry, and found the last half was missing. At first I thought it was human error ... maybe I had deleted part by mistake. Thankfully I had a backup, and I replaced it. Then, I noticed after I saved the post, that the last half was missing again in the preview window! In HTML code, the last half was just not there. I pasted it back, in HTML mode this time, with all the proper tags. It did it again. Sometimes it would delete a longer or shorter portion. Sometimes, if I didn't edit the file, and clicked on and off the entry, it would reappear ... only to be partially deleted when I opened to edit. Then I looked back through old entries, which happen to include important and personal blog entries, that many of them were partially missing. It was like the app had shot holes in my life story for the last several years. Believe me, I was not happy.

If you value your data, do not buy this version! You may never recover it. I am reporting on version 3.0.2.

I am currently switching over to MacJournal, which unfortunately it not as elegant in some ways, but seems much more polished and is better supported.

Really like this application. ATM Deluxe was king, and I was sad that Adobe dumped it and never had a version for OS X (and IMO, even the OS 9 version was not as good as the Windows version). Linotype has taken up the cause, and released a free and excellent font manager.

I especially appreciate the way it integrates with OS X's native font sets. I've always wondered why other OS X font managers cannot stick with this perfectly useful convention. I'm glad to see that Linotype is playing nice and working with Apple's methods.

The store feature looks promising, but it still has a ways to go before it reaches the usability of the iTunes store, which seems to be its source of inspiration.

Seems to work well. Have had no problems. It's just a run-of-the-mill mouse driver with some configuration options for various MS mice. Features are presumably dependent on which mouse you own.

Is it just me, or is anyone else irked by the fact that there are never ANY release notes for the various incarnations of this driver since about version 4 or so?

I don't know why others are experiencing so many problems. I have used StuffIt Deluxe since at least version 7 or 8, and from OS 9 through 10.2, 10.3, 10.4. It does not crash or hang on my system at all, and never has. It has never caused any problems whatsoever that I can remember, and I use it practically every day.

Having said that, the reasons for using StuffIt seem to be dwindling. The compression is good but not remarkable. It does support some file attributes that, as far as I know, zip does not support. But then again, there are other formats besides sitx and zip, which seem to offer similar if not better functionality.

I do like the Finder integration, and the ability to easily convert archives from one type to another. Also the ability to compress a file or archive simply by renaming it. I don't know of any free options out there that offer these benefits, which are features that I use all the time.

Unfortunately it is, IMO, very expensive ... to the point of almost absurd ... for what it does. I would think $20-30 would be the max someone should have to pay for this type of application, and less for an upgrade. Especially when there are so many free alternatives. I sincerely hope, for Allume's/Smith Micro's sake, that they will reconsider their pricing.

I have been using this program since it was SafariSorter. I gladly paid the modest shareware fee when it ceased to be freeware, and the program works beautifully. The developer is continually updating and enhancing the application, and the one or two requests I made to the developer were all implemented in a short time. Unlike some other shareware schemes, there has been no additional upgrade fee between major versions ... my original license still works. The program actually does more that sort bookmarks; it also checks for duplicates and verifies links. The GUI is still a little funky (though, IMO, not hard to use). The app icon has improved dramatically FWIW.
[Version 3.2.4]

Seems to be broken by the latest QuickTime or OS update (QT 7.0.4 or OS X 10.4.4). It was working until I updated.
[Version 2.1]
