What about Bartender? Anyone use and like it?


I use it (on the Mac side) but I don't see it as being anything like Hazel. It's useful for shuttling lesser-used menu icons off into their own space.

Is Hazel still being developed? I can go to the web store but the rest of the site gives me a 404 error, including support.


Old question; fresh answer. Yes, Hazel is still being developed, and the site has been refreshed.
