This is a great, much-needed alternative to Mozilla's Prism. For version 0.2 Fluid is miles ahead of where you'd expect it to be. Stability, speed, can't ask for more. Now all we have to wait for are feature additions and a bit more flexibility.

Fluid does as advertised but does have a few expected drawbacks. One thing I'd really like to see is torrent download support. I'd like to use Fluid as a standalone for some (legal) torrent sites and whenever I try to download a torrent file it tells me "Load Failed".

Some other things I'm not sure could be something for future releases are:

- Easier way to change icons (CandyBar is fine but maybe a drag-and-drop option?)
- Eliminate the need to build a new app whenever a new version of Fluid is released. This is annoying more than anything, but again, I don't know if this is possible.
- I'd also love to see some ad blocking implemented.

Thanks for your hard work :)

Hey thanks for the quick response! (re: icons and the sparkle thing was something I didn't realize until now)

Yet another great baseball widget.

Could I suggest changing the interface up a little? How about modeling something after Weather.widget?

Make it like a baseball forecast or something? I dunno, I just think the interface could use more... separation.

Also, the transparent gifs being called from ESPN have some SERIOUS jaggies (see: Giants). How about using locally stored pngs instead?

Finally, THANK YOU!

The Mac's best BitTorrent app just got a billion times better.

I just hope they can catch up to uTorrent in terms of features one of these days :)

Would be nice if proper spelling was used.

Does anyone know if 2.5 has inherent Intel Mac support?
