This is the real deal. You can have the classic 'Matrix' look or you can completely customize everything about it to show iTunes artwork or whatever you want.

This is a wonderful application that will pay for itself with just a few uses. Google Earth was reduced from 111 MB down to 61. Firefox went from 46 MB down to 28. MacJournal 32 to 20.

The amount of space being saved is arguably negligible considering my 320 GB hard drive plus 160 external HD. But it is how much faster these apps are after getting rid of the universal binaries and other language packs. I love the change log which keeps track of all apps that you have been "slimmed" which allows me to 'remember' the numbers I just spit at you above.

A first time user of course should be scared about slimming an application useless, so I started with free or open source apps (like Firefox, Google Earth, LiveQuartz, etc...) that you can easily re-download if something happens. But before that could even happen, Xslim provides a user-generated "blacklist" of apps known to have issues after being "slimmed". And of course you choose how frequently you want that list updated.

If you come across an app that wasn't on the blacklist, you can report it for future users. And hopefully you have backups on, so you can easily refer to them and have the whole app back again.

Very useful and smart application. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Anyone agree?

Thanks developers!

i feel like this should be a free app or these features should be built into the Mac OS like Linux has them built in.

nice app nevertheless. too bad 30-day trial is about to expire and there's no starving student discount...

ok so i JUST downloaded this and am giving it a test drive right now. it looks and feels gorgeous. its not yet perfect - how do we view RSS feeds? - but certainly puts front row to shame in its infancy stages.

is this open source? developers PLEASE KEEP WORKING ON THIS!!! this is awesome, but still needs work!
