If anyone still reads this page and were lucky enough to get a copy of the app before it disappeared, you'll be pleased to know that it still works with Lion :)

Check out MacWorld article ... and stay in touch with Proteron's Web site. It is BACK - and Snow Leopard compatible. http://tinyurl.com/maxmenus

Since you can't purchase the product any longer is there anyone who can send me a registration code so that the pop-up doesn't come up daily? I do not think this qualifies as piracy since the company is gone & you're not "stealing" their software. Thanks.

Hmmm... try Googling "MMX7 maxmenus" or something maybe.... but just remember, you got it from Google, not from me.... even though from everything I can see the company is six feet under and has been for several months... besides, if I posted the actual number here it'll get deleted for sure....

It is a great shame that this company disappeared. Yes, you can get the app from MacUpdate or even www.portcode.com as stated above, but it looks like there's no way to buy it.As for research, well, Proteron was alive and well when I wrote the article and things got a little hairy just prior to the publishing date. There was some hope that their site was only temporarily down, but of course, we now know that this isn't the case.I wonder how legal it is to submit codes on the web now that the company is apparently defunct... I'm just hoping it'll still work with Snow Leopard !

Great article.

Problem is that while a person can download the application, there is no way to buy it. That company appears to be long gone, leaving a partially functioning website behind.

Need better research for those articles.

It seem some folks thought the company was out of business - some customers were complaining about compatibility issues after paying the $30 only to find the company gone without a forwarding address (at least one posted openly at the various download depositories like version tacker and mac update). However, a little searching found the new and actual website: http://www.portcode.com/ - they are in fact in business.

The product might be worth a look if I could see the vendor's page (although it's available via macupdate).

$30? This is something that should be built into Mac OS X. I always thought that the Apple Menu was superior because it simply did not take up screen real estate and unused items were hidden by default. Yes, you can turn on automatic hiding, but the Dock is still there if you accidentally move your cursor to that side of the screen. So is it really gone if it pops up when you don't want it to? The Dock was a downgrade of an otherwise great OS.
