Since upgrading to Mountain Lion, SF has worked flawlessly.

Oops, I meant that Safari Cookies has worked flawlessly.

Works well on my MacBook Air. Does not work at all on my iMac. Both with latest Intel core2duo and Mac OS 10.6.3).

Am so happy 2010 is out, and at a nominal $20 to upgrade from 2008. I had been wondering if MD would ever ask me for a license fee again - was almost ready to donate after several years of free major upgrades. Anyway, it is an improved interface, with the same FAST functionality. My focus is on checking account and credit card registers. The budget graphics are quite fine, but for me and my account maintenance, MD is the best. Downloads from credit card companies occur quickly without intervention (in my case USAA, Citi, Chase), and MD easily accepts drag-drop of OFX/QIF-downloaded files from those banks who are back in the dark ages regarding direct access (Capital One in my case). Reconciling is never a (good) dream, but MD is as close as you can get. Quicken is only a dim bad memory now. If you change from Quicken, there is a moderate learning curve to get used to the new UI, but then you never want to go back. And searching for transactions is even easier and faster (as in instantaneous), including across accounts. Unlike Quicken, an MD search produces all matches in a list, instead of one sluggish match at a time. I think it is time for Walt to review this app. He has mentioned it before as a promising personal financial accounting option.

Finally, the only really good and automatic cookie manager for any browser - a worthy successor to Safari Plus. Been waiting anxiously for a successor since Safari Plus went out of date. As with SP, SC provides easily managed cookie categories, with only marked-as-favorite source categories surviving a Safari Quit (my Safari is version 4beta). No more manually vetting an endless list of individual cookies many from the same website. My only question is why such a low version number? SC 0.1.2 seems to be behaving like an advanced beta, almost ready to go golden. I am ready to donate when the version number gets close to 1.0.

I had been looking for an app that would merely tag messages in Mail to compensate for poorly expressed subject headers. Mailtags does the job well, but does too many things. Then along comes Tags with its clean and fast interface for tagging virtually anything, including Mail messages. Glad I waited for it - am well into the evaluation period and very likely to pay the reasonable shareware fee after another week of looking for bugs (none so far). Tags makes creating and assigning (and removing) keywords easy and fast. I think of it as a cross-indexing complement to Spotlight and ABC Launch, especially for databases and spreadsheets that Spotlight cannot reach into. I do not tag a lot of things, but for certain projects the app makes a very good consolidator of different types of files, folders, URLs and email messages. The only thing I could wish for now is an ability to tag individual records within databases and spreadsheets.

Fast and stable, clearly mapped - the best money management software. I have tried a lot of Mac finance apps, used Quicken for years, finally (and slowly) migrating to Moneydance over this last year. No glitches whatever. The search features are brilliant and speedy, as are the graphic budget displays. Upgrades have been regular and free - I may voluntarily donate soon, thinking that it is about time that responsive Reilly Technologies be paid for the upgrades I have gotten since paying for the initial 2007 version.

Flawless, and fast, as in 'it just works' with Google calendar. SpanningSync looks good, and they are certainly trying hard enough. But it often stalls, or does just a partial sync (I typically have about 12 calendars active), or syncs only in one direction. They blame it on Google protocols, but BusySync sidesteps all that, and is very quick at automatically updating. No hiccups whatever. The odd thing about BusySync documentation is that it appears as if the .prefPane merely automates iCal's publish and subscribe protocols. But all one has to do is publish to Google calendar from iCal (via BusySync), and then a change at _either_ end will update on the other. So after a couple of days with BusySync I am about to break a personal rule not to buy software until the full trial period has been exercised. Well, maybe a few more days. And hoping that BusySync will in future extend to synchronizing Address Book with Google contacts . . . .

BY FAR the best cookie manager for Safari (pre-Leopard) - painless, automatic filtering, easy-to-set preferences, then hands-off. Apple should pay to incorporate into Safari 3. But not ready for Leopard. When SP becomes compatible with Leopard, I will pay more than the suggested donation.

This upgrade is close to magic, especially with the new ability to parse entire sentences. I installed it in Leopard over version 1.3, which had been installed on Tiger. Simple installation with a new dictionary was flawless. Short experimentation showed that pinyin characters should be contiguous (words not separated by spaces) to construct sentences or phrases. Not sure about accuracy yet, but so far it seems to be even better than the 95% claimed by the developer. Well done!
