For the curious, I've installed this on Tiger (10.4.6) without issue.

I fail to understand how a browser not meeting ones needs constitutes being "obsolete". I think there's some potential gap filling. I use it to keep a gmail open at all times, without cluttering up my other browsers, and I would love a sort of web site locker to hide away sites I want to keep around, but don't want to bookmark, such as tracking packages and various blog shrapnel. I have about five or six links like this, and an app like this is great for that. The only gap to make my dreams come true is for DeskBrowse to save session (i.e., remember what bas I had open.)

That would be terrific.

No IMAP? How can a mac browser "by mac users, for mac users" not support .Mac? I haven't had a POP email account in years. I know that's not typical, but I'm a power user, and I thought that's who this app was targeted at. Certainly, I would consider it a bare minimum for a $99 email client. Come on, guys. Lower the price, fix your app, or take it off the market. In my book, a $99 mail app without IMAP is a crime against software.

It seems there's a fair amount of misunderstanding as to what this browser is. It's a Firefox clone. It's _exactly_ like firefox, except it integrates very nicely with blogging apps, RSS feeds, flickr, and bookmarks. Which is actually quite awesome, as all my bookmarks are on delicious. So if you ever wanted all your bookmarks stored on a server and available on any platform, and any browser, with zero effort, but that acted like normal bookmarks, and had a normal bookmark interface, your prayers have been answered.

Using firefox means this baby runs on Linux and Windows as well, and also means that all available features will be available on all available platforms simultaneously. It also means that the vast universe of firefox plugins will be available to the program. That's a great feature.

I like cocoa apps, too, but marking an app negatively just because you don't like the programming API is lame. This is good stuff, and it's well executed, for a pre-beta piece of software.

The only downside I see is the highly probable situation wherein all of these features become available as free firefox extensions. Which would only be a problem for this browser's maker.

Ironically, most browsers are not very net-aware. If all this browser does is cause other browsers to integrate with web services, it'll be worth it.

This is the best. The absolute, indisputable best editor on the mac. The developer is one of those hyper-responsive independent mac developers. There's a thriving plugin community. Quality software does the things you would rather not, then gets out of the wayy. That's TextMate in a nutshell. And I can't remember an unstable release.

I liked this better when it had about the same functionality, was called Okito Composer, and did not cost $60. May I direct your attention to: Mellel.

I purchased this product because iPhoto is too slow. I recently changed computers, and entered my registration number, but was informed by the application that registration numbers are for one computer. Perhaps I can ask them to send me an alternate reg for _this_ computer, the only one I'll be using. But I shall not. That is too much work. Software is supposed to make _my_ life easier.

Software developers have a perfect right to handle their licensing any way they please. And I have a perfect right to view said policies as complete bullocks. Which I do.

Here's another obligatory "get off your asses and give us address book support" request. Isn't there already a patch? Patch it!

I'm not averse to app retreads. gotta keep the leaders on their toes, so Yet Another Typing Launcher isn't an inherent evil to me. What is an inherent evil to me is a launcher that only launches apps, and eats up more screen space than dashboard widget. Try again.
