It works as advertised; however, the way it works is a little unintuitive, nonetheless I was able to figure it out fairly quickly, albeit after one archiving that didn't turn out right. Hence I docked it half a star on Features and Ease of Use.

All configuring of how you set up a rar archiving to run is done via the preferences, AND the preference window must be closed (usual upper left red button) before running the rarification; otherwise the preferences used are just the plain, default ones.

The other somewhat unusual feature is that one drags 'n drops the file or folder onto the Rarify icon; there is no Open File option.

Knowing these two things, makes it very straight forward and easy to use. I'd suggest that the dev. say as much in his/her readme file in order to make the initial user experience as smooth as possible.

...good of the developer to explain for which CL command this app is a GUI.

Another way is to just point your browser to:

The dev's site says the OS requirement is 10.6+.

I turned off the auto-update feature, and was using ver 4.8.x, but today when I started it up, it was version 5.0 and my library was emptied, i.e. the torrents I had completed or were partially completed.

Vuze 5.X is officially one big, hot, steaming load of execrable software.

I hate how the Vuze company hijacks the updating system, as well as trying to surreptitiously hijack's one's browsers with all sorts of plugins. It's become the MacKeeper of torrents.

Use Transmission. Use just about anything else. This software stinks.

Started using chrome again and have encountered the craptastic pepperflash plugin, which causes some videos to use 300% (yes!!!) of my cpu on a 2010 MPBP running OS 10.6.8. Being that I have a duo core, I understand possible 200% CPU usage, but not 300%.

From what I have read, one can disable it -- which I did -- but why is this POS the default flash player? Because this "feature", google's use of its users' data, and its sharing its users' information with the NSA, I give this browser its half-star rating.

Yes, the browser has some nice features, but funneling its users into using a bad video plug-in is odious.

Everybody else: can download via dev's site.

Question: If one goes to the MAS to obtain this, is just a .dmg of the OS downloaded or is it installed automatically?

Finally got around to trying this out after having trouble several times trying to download a very large file via my browser. This did the trick. If you haven't yet tried out a DL manager, definitely give this one a shot. It has a lot of useful features and add-ons, but suffers from the bane of most open-source apps: very poor documentation, for which I had to dock it a star on its overall rating.

Here are a couple of fairly recent tutorials I found that helped me get started:

(yes, it has annoying techno/electronic music in the background, but it is fairly short and to the point)

As mentioned in the two above text/graphic-based tutorials, when first installing be sure to get updates, which includes a large list of plugins for various hosts; this will take a few minutes. Then restart the program. You should then be good to go.

P.S.: There is a very important button, with a clipboard icon, which enables/disables monitoring the clipboard for new links. You REALLY want to disable this when you are copying non-DL links to the clipboard.

Not going to recommend any particular sites for NeoO-3.3 patch 9, but just google 'NeoOffice-3.3-Patch-9-Intel' and let your fingers do the walking. Do be sure to find the md5 hash for your download and compare it to that of the NeoOffice wiki site:
