Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. 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 is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

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?

thanks

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.
