    I'm glad to see Fetch being updated and was wondering what we can expect in a more commercial version? Are we going to see a more modern user interface?

    What would you want to see in the way of a more modern user interface (more modern than 4.0b4, that is)?

    The user interface has incorporated Aqua, so it's been updated to match the new OS, but I don't see many major changes beyond that.

    I deal better with visual prompts by nature, so the Fetch UI has always struck me as minimalist. I love the program and would like to see it improve.

    I've noted similar products on various platforms that more closely emulate the OS interface, including icon display. I guess there are speed issues to consider in that, but there's one idea.

    I think the windows take up too much space. I know that they're collapsible now, but I think you could display all of that information in a smaller space without minimizing the window.

    Another idea might be to allow browsing by columns similar to that seen in the new Finder - and in Greg's Browser (no relation! :-) on the Classic Mac OS. RBrowser has a NeXT-like viewer that lets me skip around quickly.

    Most importantly, though, is the bookmark window. I think the usability and appearance of this could be much better.

    I'd like to see ways to group bookmarks, put them in folders or even see a toolbar with pull downs like Internet Explorer uses.

    Anyway, there are a few suggestions ... Keep up the good work!
