I love this software and was missing it in Intel land. Apple does a horrible job supporting keyboard usage and MM makes it all right with a perfect interface. Just wonderful... it should be a part of OS X.

So far, workin great on my new MBP. Apple should pay this guy for his work; Mail should have had this all along. For such a smart company, Apple sure has a blind spot about keyboard navigation.

The thing is gorgeous. My one issue: no groups or folders. I don't always want to read every article in every feed. Sometimes I just want sports, or politics, etc.

This browser is brilliant. I have about one crash every few days with 5.0. Complaints about page-rendering are 99% unfounded. I have had some occasional issues with CSS and snarky Javascript, but no browser really does that right, and it will get better when they upgrade to the latest Webcore.

The per-page preferences are killer. The ad-blocking spectacular. The visual tabs exquisite. The source viewer clever and convenient (load a page you're working on, tweak the source, redisplay it right in the browser). Shortcuts excellent.

I haven't gotten the hang of workspaces yet, and I use NetNewsWire for RSS instead; but overall this browser is wonderful.

Very charming tennis game. Still has some rough edges, but it has a very nice tennis feel, with the mouse control. The particle model has a genuine feeling... I make the same mistakes on the e-court as I did on live courts!

I think it's still too easy to beat the Pro, but it's only version .53...

The author is very responsive, too!

Wow. This is one of those rare updates which actually fixes almost everything annoying about the previous version. I've tried both Notetaker and Notebook and I'm now using Notebook every day. It's rock solid and speedy and now has some of its eye candy turn-off-able.

Big thumbs up.

Acquisition is the first Gnutella on Mac that works for me. I'm not a company shill, thank you very much. Limewire was okay, but it's gotten more and more bloated. The other all-in-one's I've had trouble setting up, your mileage may vary. But Acq worked wonderfully out of the box. I can't believe it's still a beta.

I like this program a lot. But I'm writing to post a fix, in case you have a problem with no syntax highlighting in your 1.1b3. Go to for a fix from the mailing list.
