Not useful. Problems on a Mac can be certainly addressed more efficient with tools like Cocktail, Onyx etc. It's apparent success on the AppStore shows clearly what is wrong with the AppStore, i.e. software which has no clear benefit gets completely overhyped. Let's hope for the best that MacOS X doesn't become some iOS operated via a physical keyboard but the AppStore seems to lead the way.

Apps manage it to get into top categories which perform badly and are outright dangerous e.g. MacCleanse or which are knock-offs of freeware and open source as a lot of the PDF converters. In other words: apps which wouldn't survive on MU a single day, seem to grow and prosper.

I'm afraid, that Apple is going to make people use the AppStore much more by making it the default way of purchasing their software. This is sad to see as a lot of independent software companies are providing an invaluable input into the platform, which should be appreciated by Apple as it also drives their sales and market share, or is everything iOS only these days ?

I tried it and it adds clutter instead of improving the overview. Never knew how good the default Mail is until I tried this app. Unfortunately this app / Mail-plugin ?? is totally attention-craving and disrupts my usual workflow. I will revert to the usual red badge on the dock icon to check if a mail has arrived.

Just as a general comment, why all web browsers have to be closed when Cookie Stumbler cleans and analyzes:

Camino, Firefox etc store their cookies in a SQLite database, which is write-locked while those browsers are open. This means, that no other app than the web browsers can write changes into these databases.

Safari and Webkit organize cookies differently and those storages would be available for write-operations while the browser is open but the danger is to disrupt those storages as well while Safari tries to write something if any other application would try the same in parallel.

Does a great job to highlight Ruby on Rails properly and more comprehensive. By doing so it will save a lost of time by avoiding typos. BBEdit doesn't get close. It might be possible to get BBEdit to do the same but Textmate is the best editor for Ruby.

If you want to get rid of ad cookies, I would look at Cookie Stumbler, which is currently out as a beta and will probably be available very soon ? It finds a lot of cookies even as a beta, also a lot of unidentified ones. Privacy is important and apparently you can trace a persons preferences after knowing 5 sites which a person has visited. So it has quite a value to me. Cookie seems not to address this issue sufficiently but I obviously can only judge by the screenshots and the posted comments as no demo is available.
