Seems like I can not download from Rapidshare when the default browser is set to google chrome. Works fine when default browser is set to safari.

Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Safari 4.0.4
Igetter 2.9
Google Chrome 5.0.307.5 (dev build)

The problem appears, because iGetter v2.8 for Mac doesn't support Chrome's cookies, yet. Google Chrome for Mac is still in beta and it's very early to promise support for it.

iGetter v2.8 uses the default browser's cookie, which you can change at "New URL"/"Item Settings" dialog of each download. v2.7.5 and prior always uses the Safari cookie (when no session cookie is sent from the browser).

In the meantime, to download from RS you need to:

1. Login to your premium account and open the 'Options' panel. Now turn on the direct downloads option. Also, find the ReferrerString text on the same page, copy it and then paste into "HTTP user agent" field at iGetter options, Advanced panel.

2. Then, open the iGetter options, Site Manger panel and add the following entries with your user info (notice the point before

According to Rapidshare support the ReferrerString is no longer used, and is therefore not visible in useraccounts. This makes this solution kinda hard to implement. I think you need to consider putting this into the backlog for the next version of igetter.
