Note to Saft users:

Using both Glims and Saft on the same browser could have unexpected results. Instead of spending time inquiring and fixing this, we decided to invest our time into improving Glims so that you can enjoy more features as soon as possible.
Please feel most welcome to share you thoughts with us.
