MacUpdate: Utility App Updates MacUpdate: Utility App Updates Mon, 25 Jul 2016 06:31:10 -0400 MacUpdate RSS 2.0 (http://www.macupdate.com) http://www.macupdate.com updates@macupdate.com.com (MacUpdate) MacUpdate Trash It! 7.0 - Force-empty your trash can.

Trash It! is a little application force-empties your Trash. It also supports Drag and Drop. Especially useful if you have files or folders in the Trash with permissions set incorrectly, locked Trash items, want to delete a stuck item, or trash items from other partitions. If you drop files or folders onto the Trash It! icon, it will delete them. If you double-click on it, it will clean out your Trash can. This is the software Apple Tech recommends when all else fails (according to users)!

Trash It! should be used when:

  1. You can't get rid of trash items manually.
  2. You can't move items to the trash.
  3. You have a large number of items to delete (e.g., previous system folders).
  4. You’re ready to pull your hair out because nothing seems to be working! :)
This is not a Finder trash can replacement! It should be used as a last resort!

Please note: Older versions of Trash It! are available here. There is a hardware bug with 10.6 running on certain Macs that causes Trash It! to unexpectedly quit on launch. Please use v5.x if you experience this problem.



Version 7.0:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.7 or later

  • Much faster drag ’n drop functions, especially with large amounts of files.
  • Better utilization of 64-bit architecture.
  • Better handling of Time Machine files accidentally dragged to the trash.
  • Auto-quit last dialog box after 3 seconds if donation made.
  • Other bug fixes and a return to previous app icon (user feedback).


  • OS X 10.7 or later

MacPCLtoPDF 1.3.19 - Converts PCL and PXL files to PDF format.

It is merely an AppleScript wrapper around a compiled copy of GhostPCL (which is released by Artifex under the GNU General Public License). GhostPCLx doesn't work on OS X 10.7 or later, so I prepared this to take its place.

VisualDiffer 1.6.6 - Compare folders and files side-by-side.

VisualDiffer compares folders and files side-by-side using colors to visually show differences. From the Folder view it's possible to make operations on folders and files like copying or deleting.

It's possible to compare directories quickly choosing base folders from the context menu. Using the File Filter feature, it is possible to hide specific files like .git, .svn directories, or the omnipresent .DS_Store files from visualization.

Folder comparison can be done using different techniques from the fastest "compare only date and size," to the fine-grained byte-by-byte comparison. File comparison is done using the UNIX diff command. This choice makes the result quick, standard, and reliable.

It's possible to save work sessions, then quickly reopen them to compare directories hierarchies or two specific files.



Version 1.6.6:
  • Now it's possible to compare by filename only (the missing most obvious compare method)
  • Do not sleep the computer while running long comparisons (power assertions)

VisualDiffer compares folders and files side-by-side using colors to visually show differences. From the Folder view it's possible to make operations on folders and files like copying or deleting.

It's possible to compare directories quickly choosing base folders from the context menu. Using the File Filter feature, it is possible to hide specific files like .git, .svn directories, or the omnipresent .DS_Store files from visualization.

Folder comparison can be done using different techniques from the fastest "compare only date and size," to the fine-grained byte-by-byte comparison. File comparison is done using the UNIX diff command. This choice makes the result quick, standard, and reliable.

It's possible to save work sessions, then quickly reopen them to compare directories hierarchies or two specific files.

  • Now it's possible to compare by filename only (the missing most obvious compare method)
  • Do not sleep the computer while running long comparisons (power assertions)

Extension Unpacker 1.2.1 - See what makes Safari extensions tick.

Extension Unpacker lets you unpack Safari extensions to see what files they contain. If you are worried about the safety of an extension, or are just curious about how it works, this app can help you out. It is perfect for users who are not comfortable with using the command line interface (Terminal) to accomplish the task, and for those who are, the app provides a user interface and will automatically take you to the extension's file directory when it is done unpacking. Another major feature is that Extension Unpacker (1.2 or later) can detect adware Safari extensions, and either delete them for you, or unpack them so you can examine their files if you're not sure that they are adware.



Version 1.2.1:
  • Improvements to the update process
  • Fixes an issue where users may not have had permission to access the folder the unpacked extension was saved to

Quick Sprites 1.14.1 - Create and maintain CSS sprite sheets.

Quick Sprites simplifies the creation and maintenance of CSS sprite sheets that enable you to optimize your websites.

A sprite sheet is a single image that combines many smaller ones. CSS sprites help reduce the number of HTTP requests that the browser needs to do in order to load and render a Web page. This is a valuable technique that will make your Web pages faster and potentially gain a better ranking on search engines.

Quick Sprites automatically packs your images so that the resulting sprite sheet uses the smallest possible area. Since the browser must to decompress the image in order to use it, the smaller its area, the less memory it'll need. Quick Sprites can also further optimize the resulting image, saving extra bandwidth.

One of the biggest drawbacks in using CSS sprites during the development of a website is that it takes time to create the sprite sheets, and most importantly, keep them up-to-date. Indeed, when a site evolves you might need to replace some icons, add new ones or remove those you don't need anymore. This means editing the sprited image to make room for the new assets, reorganizing its layout if you care about optimal performances, updating your CSS stylesheets… All this tedious work can be delegated to Quick Sprites, enabling you to focus on what's most important: creating interesting and beautiful websites.

If you never considered adding CSS sprites to your workflow because of the extra work involved in maintaining them, with Quick Sprites you won't have any excuse left not to optimize your websites.
