There was a massive bug that went undetected (by me) for months because it only manifested when you had no unread or pinned bookmarks. In that situation, if you searched your archived bookmarks (or just pressed Delete to list them), the list height would remain stuck at zero, making your archived bookmarks invisible. Really stupid. Download Pickpocket
Finally updated the bookmark fetching code to take advantage of Pinboard’s and Delicious’s support for downloading bookmarks added after a specific date. No longer will Cloudmarks re-download all your bookmarks if there’s a new one since the last download (yes, this was crazy and stupid). Now it will only download the new one(s). Download Cloudmarks
Same fix as for gDirectLinks, so the Google result link rewriting feature works again. Download LinkThing
Updated so it works again after Google got rid of classnames on normal search result links. I also did away with the image link rewriting feature, since Google’s new image popover is quite nice and useful. (Or, you could say, I got lazy.) Download gDirectLinks
In the interests of reducing Safari context menu pollution, the Quickstyle context menu items no longer appear when you right-click a link.
New extension: TypeFind
If you dislike having to press Command-F to find words on a web page, this extension is for you. TypeFind
Added an option to exclude tagged items from the unread items list. Download Pickpocket 3.0.7
Added an option to disable click+keypress shortcuts. Download Quickstyle
More Kippt-related bug fixes, and now we are getting the whole list if you have more than 200 items. It may take some time, though.
Fixed a huge bug or two in the Kippt support. Please note, another problem remains in that Cloudmarks will only retrieve at most 200 of your Kippt bookmarks. Fix to come in another build. Download Cloudmarks
Cloudmarks 1.8.7 & PopSearch 2.0.5
If you had enabled the popover but removed the toolbar button, the extension was useless. Now, if you do that, it will open in an iframe on top of the web page (as if you had disabled the popover). Download Cloudmarks 1.8.7 or PopSearch 2.0.5
Fixed a little problem where if you enabled the popover version of the style editor but removed the toolbar button, the style editor would never open. Now, under those conditions, the style editor will open in an iframe on top of the web page. Download Quickstyle 1.2.2
Pickpocket will no longer attempt background updates if it does not have authorization to access your Pocket account.
If you invoke the Add Bookmark popover or popup while some text is selected in the active tab, Cloudmarks will now populate the Description field with the text selection. If no text is selected, Cloudmarks will still populate the Description field with the contents of the active page’s description meta tag, if it has one. Please note that populating the Description field with the text...
I’ve changed the default stylesheet to do away with Reader’s semi-opaque dark background. Now the entire window is filled with the same background color, which I think looks better. I’ve also made the scrollbar more subtle and moved it to the right edge of the window. If you already use CustomReader and want to check out the new look, go to the Advanced tab of...
This release adds support for using the Delete and Del (forward delete) keys as action hotkeys, although not as place hotkeys. I also made Delete the default hotkey for the “Go Back” action. Download Tabkeys 2.5.4 now.
A small enhancement: If you empty the search box after typing in it, all bookmarks will be listed. Download Cloudmarks now
Improved responsiveness when typing search terms. Download now
Little bug fix; the unread badge on the toolbar icon will now update when you delete an item.
Fixed a couple more bugs. Also, you can now make Pickpocket stop using whatever Pocket account you authorized it for, which is useful if you want it to start using a different account. To stop using the authorized account, click “Reauthorize Pickpocket” in the settings popover.
There were quite a few bugs in 3.0. I hope I’ve found them all. Download Pickpocket 3.0.1 or let Safari update your copy.
Added support for the “Basic” view in Google Image Search results.
Added support for the “Basic” view in Google Image Search results.
I’ve rewritten Pickpocket to use Pocket’s v3 API, which finally supports item deletion. So now you can delete a bookmark from the list popover, either by clicking a button or by typing Command-Shift-Delete. The new API uses OAuth instead of username/password for authentication, so you’ll have to authorize Pickpocket to access your Pocket account when you update to the new...
Added a keyboard shortcut, Command-Control-P, to add the current page to Pocket. It’s not editable yet.
Fixed a bug introduced in 2.4.22 that prevented the bookmark list from appearing.
This release adds a cool new feature. Now you can decide where a link will open on-the-fly by pressing one of five user-configurable keys before you click the link, temporarily overriding your tab positioning settings for that click. Need clarification? Say you’ve set LinkThing to open each link in a new tab to the right of the current tab. Now, suppose you’d like to temporarily...
Added context menu item “Add Link to Pocket”. List popup now remembers and restores scroll position and highlighted item.
This release adds a checkbox to the Add Bookmark dialog that specifies whether the bookmark is to be shared (made public). The setting only applies to Pinboard and Delicious bookmarks and is hidden if you aren’t saving bookmarks to either of those services. Download Cloudmarks 1.8.2 or let Safari update it.
CustomReader II 2.0.3
Printing from Safari Reader now respects some CustomReader settings. The effective settings are the body and heading fonts, text alignment, and paragraph indentation/spacing. Other settings continue to have no effect when printing. Download CustomReader or let Safari update your copy
The settings “New Tab Position” and “New Background Tab Position” now only have effect when you open a tab using Tabkeys. These settings were interfering with a new, as yet unreleased feature of LinkThing that lets you decide the position of a new tab (opened from a link) on the fly.
Minor enhancement: If you Shift-click an item in the popover, it will open in a background tab, and the popover will remain open. As a result, you can now open several chosen items without having to open the popover for each one. Download Pickpocket or let Safari update your copy.
Fixed a bug that prevented Cmd-Option-clicking a link from opening a new window.
Apple's new EarPods
I think they’re quite good. Not only are they better in every way than Apple’s previous pack-in earbuds, I’d even say they sound better than low-end IEMs like my Klipsch Image S4i and my Sony DREX61IP. I’m no kind of audiophile, so I won’t try to qualify or quantify that opinion except to say that the bass is surprisingly good and the treble/midrange has a nice, open,...
Made the link download limit user-configurable.
Pickpocket now downloads unread links before archived ones. This means your link list is guaranteed to include all of your unread links (as long as there are no more than 1,000 of them), even if some of them are not among the 1,000 most recent links.
Made a slight tweak for links in frames that have a target of “_self” or “_parent”. These links should now open in their intended targets if unaffected by LinkThing settings or the Command key.
Improved the HiDPI toolbar icon.
A-ha hah. That last update, which fixed opening all new links when the active tab was empty, broke opening a single link under the same circumstance. Nice.
Fixed a stupid bug that broke the “Open all new” command if the active tab was empty. Sorry about that.
In this build: If you’ve set Pickpocket to auto-archive on tab close, it will now only do so if you’ve actually viewed the tab first. Raised the download limit to 1,000 items from 500. Download Pickpocket 2.4.13 or let Safari update it.
This build features a number of small improvements and bug fixes. The most important change: It’s now possible to add a new, empty rule in the style editor. Just select the “(new rule)” item in the selector menu and enter a selector. Note: It was always possible to duplicate a selected rule by typing ⌘Enter in the selector bar. Download Quickstyle 1.2 or let Safari update...
After releasing 1.1.11, I had a better idea for how to prioritize the ID (over the class) of the highlighted element when using the selector helper. In 1.1.12, I’ve added a new keystroke to the selector helper: If you press Tab while the helper is active, priority will be given to the highlighted element’s ID instead of its class. Press Tab again to restore priority to the class....
When using Quickstyle’s selector helper, if the selected element has both an ID and a class, the generated selector will now use the ID if you shift-click; otherwise, it will use the classname. (Previous versions of Quickstyle always used the classname in such cases.)
Fixed a regression bug in 1.1.8 that could cause styles to lose effect in some circumstances. Download Quickstyle 1.1.9 or let Safari update.
Fixed a bug that prevented changes to favorite fonts from being immediately applied on pages.
Added a setting to disable handling of address bar searches in Safari 6.
In Safari 6, PopSearch now handles search queries in the address bar. You can use the same search engine keywords you would use in PopSearch’s own search bar, so (for example) entering w enry iggins in the address bar will do a Wikipedia search instead of the default one. If you don’t use a keyword (like w), PopSearch will determine which search engine to use by the same criteria it...
CustomReader II 2.0.1
Safari 6 Reader has an annoying bug where, if you switch away from the Reader to a different tab and then switch back to the Reader’s tab, any keypresses from that point will be captured by the underlying web page and not by Reader. This means you can no longer scroll the Reader using the keyboard. You can get keyboard scrolling back by clicking anywhere inside the Reader page, but...
I’ve tweaked the way new tabs from links are positioned. Formerly, if you had set the new tab position option (either foreground or background) to “Right of current tab”, new tabs would be positioned according to Safari’s built-in rules. By these rules, if you open more than one link on the same page in a new tab, each new tab after the first will be placed to the right of...
