Still can't move and scale the wallpapers. Why don't they just withdraw the move and scale function until it actually functions. Problem solved!

MBP 3,1 Mid 2007. Graphics driver problems after updating to Mavericks. 10 evenly spaced vertical stripes coming up from the bottom of the display. This is the oldest supported Mac, think twice before installing 10.9 on such an old machine.

Anyone who chooses to use a Chinese made web-browser must be barking mad. The term 'unpublished capabilities' is going to become much more commonplace over the next few years. The Russians are so nervous about the 'unpublished capabilities' of western produced hardware /software platforms that they have generated their own state funded computer industry. The Chinese are doing the exact same thing and you can bet your life that they are very keen on coming up with a few 'unpublished capabilities; of their own. I'm really sorry if this browser is totally safe and squeaky-clean but the risk is just too big for me to consider using it.

This came out months ago. As has already been pointed out, this replaces the old Citrix Online Plug-in. The main difference seems to be the installation and set-up. It was so convoluted under the old online plug-in you had to make sure you had the right version of JAVA installed just to run the installer. After that it never worked until you manually started the plug-in which was buried deep in the recesses of Mac OS. A normal user had absolutely no chance. It was like going back to 1997. Then there was the Citrix support or rather lack of it. The impenetrable Citrix website is anathema to the slickness and clarity that is Apple. Citrix make so many products and it is absolutely impossible to deduce what they all do, how (or if) they work together or how to use them. The Citrix website is completely impossible for anyone who doesn't work for Citrix to use and Citrix seem to be completely incapable of seeing their product miasma through the mind of someone coming to the Citrix universe for the first time. It's so opposite to Apple it's incredible.

I'm really worried for Adobe. They seem trapped in their own little world where the only people they come in contact with are people already familiar with the Adobe user-interface conventions. Coming from outside the Adobe universe I find it confusing and dark. It's like joining a complicated French film halfway through. I thought it was me but I've since discovered that I'm far from alone.

Fluid seems to have lost the ability to create MenuBar embedded apps. If this is so, it is a great shame and I hope I am somehow mistaken about this fact. Otherwise, Prism does something very similar to Fluid and seems to be able to produce apps that are somewhat smaller in size.

Possible enhancement:
Being able to make cross-platform apps would be an amazing enhancement although it may very well be impossible.

Onyx has saved my bacon so many times over the years I've been using it. It still astounds me that something this good can actually be free.

It was a relief when it crashed. Only trouble is it keeps auto-launching. It's like a bad penny, it just keeps coming back. Try XBMC.

If Adobe really wanted to stick it to Apple, they would come up with a clever way of making this product work on a PPC Mac. That way people wouldn't be forced to upgrade to an Intel Mac filling Apple's coffers with cash . Unfortunately, Adobe Flash Player can't playback streamed H.264 content on any PPC Mac. G3, G4, G5. The solution is to download the content (if possible) and playback using Quicktime Player.

Before paying for this, Try 'Print Selection' it's free. I can't tell from the iPrint description what advantages it has over Print Selection. maybe it has none.
