Questions / Help / Hints


  • This software is in the beta test stage. There is no warranty and no guarantee. I've been using it on my own computer for some time with no ill effects. Although I don't believe it will harm anyone's system, I certainly can't guarantee it. The user assumes all risks in using this software.

  • I first came across shortcuts while looking at OmniWeb and decided that Apple's Safari needed them, too.

  • This software is Freeware.
    It costs nothing.
