This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. While using 2.7, I checked for updates. 2.7 reported that there were no updates and 2.7 was the most recent version. Then I installed 3.0 and it never updated my IP, reported that I don't use OpenDNS. Also, I couldn't find Growl support in 3.0. Reverted to 2.7 from backup. 2.7 worked fine as used to be. I will not use 3.0.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. this tool takes much more memory than its tiny task should need; over 100MB of private memory after it ran for a few hours on my Intel/10.4.11 system; this might be a memory leak; for something that runs 24/7 this is way too much for me...
also, since it is a free app with no implicit contract, and since i'm giving it my OpenDNS password, i really think it should be open source so that i can be comfortable what it's doing with my info...
also some smaller problems:
Preferences window gets lost behind other windows -- once another window is in front of it, can't command-tab to it, can't resurface it by selected Preferences from the menu item, must hide everything or use Expose
About window sometimes displays behind current app, result is similar problem to Preferences window
after manually running Check for Updates, the menu item's menus are permanently greyed out
finally, a feature request: new IP notification through Growl
