I'm surprised that you're unfamiliar with such a long-established competing product. I provided a link to the BlueHarvest main page above, in lieu of copy-and-pasting a bunch of its explanatory content into this post. Perhaps you could take a moment to click that link and check it out? I would think that any differences would stand out to you immediately.

RE: USBclean vs BlueHarvest
USBclean vs BlueHarvest
I've been using Ross Tullock's BlueHarvest utility for many years. Having recently discovered the existence of USBclean, I'm curious as to how the two utilities differ. Is there anything in particular that you'd like to point out, Russell, in the context of a comparative review?

Minim: How does it work? Compare to alternatives?
Hi there. I had never heard of Minim before happening across your website today (by following a link to SessionRestore from this question page at AskDifferent). Minim sounds intriguing. Given the major changes to Safari's extensions API since v11, I'm wondering if you could provide a technical overview of how Minim does what it does, and also talk about how its end-user features and technical methodology compare and contrast to somewhat similar browser add-ons, such as Wipr, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, and the non-Safari version of uBlock Origin. (Based on the descriptions in the product page, Minim's features sound a lot like those of uBO, which was a favorite of mine on Chrome before I switched to Safari.) Thanks!
RE: Can't enable SessionRestore on Safari 13.1
I am sorry. It is not your app fault, because all extensions box are not able to tick.
Is this happening while you're using macOS Catalina? If so, it's a known bug in Safari, apparently introduced in Catalina v10.15.3, which has been very thoroughly documented by solo developer Jeff Johnson, and mentioned by many others, including Michael Tsai and Rob Griffiths. As far I'm aware, the bug has still not been fixed as of Sept 2020. In late July, Apple did at least acknowledge the problem by posting a brief support article that merely suggests rebooting your Mac in "safe mode" in order to enable your Safari extensions, then rebooting normally.
