Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Facebook login with cookie not work?

This page mentions why you cannot login to facebook easily even with a cookie:

Simon captures the h_user etc strings, but when I try to login again only my email is saved, and not the password. Is there any way to fix it?

Re: Facebook login with cookie not work?

Sites that go out of their way to make it hard to log in could well be a problem for Simon.

A workaround could be to write a script (like those on that page) that fetches the page manually, providing the username and password via standard input.
