Great for switching in development scripts for live scripts or switching between minified and development versions of frameworks such as jQuery, mootools etc.

Was working fine for several years, then suddenly it appears to have lost all my redirects. When trying to restore them involving links with "https://" it removes the colon : and produces an usable URL, so as far as I can tell it's now useless to me. Still wish Chrome would just allow you to set up shortcuts to type into the URL bar to go to specific websites; this is a ridiculously clunky way around the issue.

Works beautifully, unlike Redirector (too clunky and convoluted). No hard, challenging manuals. Very straightforward. Well, but very well done.
