HoudahSpot continues to be a fantastic alternative to Spotlight, and this new updated look is very nice. My thanks to the developer for keeping this available for 10.6.8

I highly recommend XtraFinder. It's turned out to be a fantastic addition to my Snow Leopard system. I haven't tried all the features, but I've not had a bit of trouble after many months of use. My favorites are the tabbed windows, arranging folders on top, automatically adjustment of width of Name column. I also love the handy Copy Path function in whichever format you happen to need.

One other great thing: I always felt the white Finder windows were too harsh/bright for my low-light workstation. XtraFinder has a feature "Light text on dark background" which allows you to set the colors of both text and background. I just changed the window backgrounds to a more eye-soothing gray.

I would recommend a PayPal donation button somewhere.

Works great for me, though I was expecting it to be a bit faster. All disc drive trays pop open, returning my disc. Thank you.

I'm a long time TextExpander user and used the "Check for updates" this morning. I went for the upgrade (download & install option), but:

"You can't use this version of the application TextExpander with this version of Mac OS X. You have Mac OS X 10.6.8. The application requires Mac OS X 10.7 or later."

MacUpdate also shows requirements as 10.6 but that must be for the older version. Darn.

I installed 6.1.6-2 but had to revert back to 6.1.5-2. The problem was that the preferences would not "stick" after a restart. I also tried deleting everything via the Wacom Tablet Utility, re-installing 6.1.6-2 then re-entering everything fresh (I had a lot of settings). Next morning, everything gone again.

I spent more than a year troubleshooting my Photoshop CS6-Wacom intermittent hang issue on Snow Leopard and Mavericks. I wanted to let you know that Adobe has released a fix "WhiteWindowWorkaround.plugin". Where I was previously having 1-2 of the hangs a day, I've not had one for several weeks since installing their fix plug-in.

Here’s the link:

After running the Apple Security Update 2012-004 for Mac OS X 10.6 on OS 10.6.8 I couldn't get the MailFollowup 1.4.4 plugin to successfully load.

Solution: Download "MailPluginFix" from here: http://code2k.net/products/mailpluginfix/ and follow described steps to patch any incompatible plugins after a software update.
