Thanks, who would have thought anyone could have done anything to bring a semblance of redemption to the most (rightly) ridiculed typeface in history!!!

I've long used caffeine as it does exactly as much as I need. However, Wimoweh has a lot more options and control, very well implemented and a responsive developer. I do miss my cup of coffee full/empty icon though!!!

What a fantastic update!!!!! Really worth the update price and clearly the best software in its class on OS X.

Yay, from the makers of previous snake oil memory optimiser, comes the same thing with prettier graphics...

To quote an older comment of mine:

"Countless highly trained computer science engineers have built the virtual memory system across multiple OSes in this way. Do you really think a single line command or some two-bit app developer somehow can do something the most highly skilled (and in Apples case probably richly paid) CS engineers have failed to understand for years? Again, read The Memory Optimization Hoax by sysinternal engineer Mark Russinovitch (Windows VM is largely similar). "

Rocky sand studio, nor anyone else have ever made a reliable test case to show these optimisers do anything but damage performance objectively...

Hm, according to their website their "optimisation" is still indiscriminately purging all caches, therefore still as useless in Mavericks as any other app of this type. Now if they could come up with a selective purge, that would be something!

After having trialled several password managers (1Password, Locko, Dashlane, KeepassX and Lastpass), Lastpass provides by far the best experience and the most features across multiple OSes (I use OS X, iOS, Android and occasionally Windows and Linux) and devices in my opinion.

Dashlane got excluded early on for its poor browser support. Nicely designed website though!

Keepass(X) was incredibly clunky across different OSes. Not for me.

Locko was still too new to have a robust featureset and cross-device support, but had a great UI for OS X and good pricing.

1Password (1P) is obviously popular among OS X users, and I think Agilebits seem responsive and helpful developers. The problems for 1P for me were the very poor authentication options compared to Lastpass (which has extensive multifactor, one-time use, grid and other authenication options), very basic browser integration and an IMO really excessive pricing scheme (across devices and updates).

Lastpass is obviously less polished UI-wise than the native mamagers like Locko and 1P on OS X. but its browser integration is far superior and that is really where I use 98% of my passwords (as I suspect many others). I love options like grid authentication, one-time passwords and other great lastpass features. And the pricing is *much* more reasonable than most of the other options (especially 1P) considering the better functionality for my needs. As a premium user, I've always had prompt responses to my service requests.

Lastpass are starting to build (in beta) a cloud storage option outside the US to alleviate some of the US cloud-based concerns, although do remember that all data is a heavily encrypted blob, and data privacy is a global not local issue.

Great to see a developer informing users that a new version is coming with plenty of time. I'm definitely paying for V4 (hope there will be some sort of upgrade pricing for us long term users) to support the excellent software and thoughtful and communicative developer!

Note there have been problems with the auto-update function from previous 10.1 snapshots to this final release. You need to delete your ~/Library/Caches/Opera/ directory then do a manual upgrade to get it working, see this article:
