Danger, Danger, Danger, Will Robinson!

This is NOT PopChar X, the OS X-compatible version, which is up to version 2.1.

Otherwise, PopChar is a great piece of work I would never do without.

The people at Netscape *still* don't seem to get it: I, for one, do NOT want a 60 Mb Swiss Army knife for a browser.

I don't need included email app - I have Mailsmith. My interest in instant messaging, IRC chat and newsgroups is negligible. I don't need a Netscape email address - I have an unlimited number, since I own a couple of domain names.

Netscape 7.1 also doesn't display pages very well - it throws in underlines when "invisible .gif" spacers are used, thus giving the appearance of a checklist. Arrrgh!

And Netscape *is* pokey when starting up compared to Safari, Opera, iCab and Mozilla.

I can't think of *any* reasons I would use Netscape 7.1 as my default browser.

A joke? No. I was mightly tired of pop-ups everywhere with IE, and Pop-Up Zapper DOES THE JOB.

Prior to Safari's release, I paid the freight for this app and it did what it's s'posed to do and did it well. From the moment I installed Pop-Up Zapper, I immediately stopped getting pop-ups with IE. I was a very happy camper.

The only reason I knock this down on value is Safari blocks pop-ups for free, and I prefer Safari.

This app is one of the very first pieces of shareware I downloaded in the days shortly after I got on line in 1996. I've always been impressed with the capabilities, value and quality of this app. Like someone wrote below: don't even think about it - download Graphic Converter immediately.

Not to mention the fact that Web cam images are usually (in my experience) of such abysmal quality, I wouldn't even begin to consider putting them on my desktop.

This is a very, very cool idea.


It's been five minutes (and counting) and a 13.5 Kb .pdf file STILL isn't done uploading to my .mac account.


No Help file? And I mean NONE! I understand this is a beta, but I think I'd write the proposed help file FIRST. Maybe that's just me.

I like StuffIt, but don't be surprised to find, as I did, that if you already have 7.0.1, you may have to re-install 7.0.0 and then apply this update. What a flaming pain in the tush! As a result, one star for ease of use as regards this updater. And in this day of gigantic hard drives, I wonder how many people spend much time stuffing things for storage any more. Yeah, it's stable.

Amazing, simply amazing fun! With the new directory page at the author's Web site, I'm looking forward to the traffic. And it's still FREE!!

Pssssssst! Here's a dirty little secret, or a useful tip, depending on your mindset: you can accomplish the same thing this app does by simply putting an alias of the Applications folder in the Dock. Thus rendering this app unnecessary.

I have Quickie_X_3.0.1 and I'm quite happy with it.

BUT ... when I downloaded this version (3.5b2) last night and tried to open previously-created galleries, all it showed was the very first photo in every gallery I opened. NOT GOOD.

I went back to 3.0.1 to check myself, and was able to open and view everything I'd put in the galleries that I'd created using 3.0.1.

I hope it's just a tweak or two that's necessary.
