In Apple’s parlance, “It just works.”… or should I say, “It just worked.” To increase security in macOS Mojave, Apple has decided people need to give more permission to applications that want to access certain kinds of data on your machine. As of this writing, the protected areas are: Mail, Messages, Safari, Home, and Time Machine. One of the things you need to do...

DEVONagent 3.11 and DEVONsphere 1.9.2 for macOS Mojave

DEVONagent Search Sets

Search sets are part of what makes DEVONagent so powerful for serious research. Whatever the topic of the search, they run it on multiple search engines, crawl sites, post-filter the results, archive them, and finally hand them over to other apps or AppleScript. DEVONagent Pro 3.11 reorganizes search sets into groups. This allows to create and use more search sets for even specific use cases without cluttering the menus or losing track.

If you have ever rabbit-trailed while reading a web page and found yourself far from where you started, consider this before choosing the Web (Deepest) option. Here’s...
