Stairways Releases Anarchie Pro 3.0


Stairways Software has released Anarchie Pro 3.0, the latest version of their widely used file transfer program. Long indispensable as a top-notch FTP client, Anarchie Pro 3.0 now sports HTTP capabilities including a snappy Finder-like view of links in Web pages and the ability to download entire Web sites for offline browsing or authoring. Anarchie Pro 3.0 also enables users to resume FTP and HTTP file transfers (assuming the remote server supports resumable transfers), synchronize remote FTP folders, and edit remote FTP files transparently with BBEdit. Although much of Anarchie’s interface has been revamped, it offers several clever new touches, including a measure of recent throughput so you can easily determine if a transfer has halted, and audio feedback when transfers start and finish. Anarchie Pro 3.0 can also override Internet Config so other applications can easily hand common file types to Anarchie for downloading, supports Mac OS appearance and themes, and includes Apple Internet Access Detector (AIAD) actions for handing links to Anarchie Pro from any program that supports AIAD. By popular request, Anarchie Pro 3.0 will also save passwords with bookmarks, but also offers support for Apple’s forthcoming Keychain, which will offer a secure method of storing sensitive information. Anarchie Pro 3.0 is $35 shareware ($20 if you’re upgrading from an earlier version), and requires System 7 or higher and MacTCP or Open Transport.
