iGetter v2.9.3 integration with Safari 9 on El Capitan works as usual. Here is how to enable contextual menu commands (iGetter extension) and click catcher (iGetter plugin):

iGetter integration with Safari supports cookies (including session cookies), but due to security restriction some cookies can't be read in plugins (i.e. HttpOnly cookies). This restriction exists long before Safari 9 and El Capitan.

The only option that you can't use in iGetter v2.9.3 on El Capitan is "Safari" cookie option at iGetter > New URL > Advanced tab panel. It will be used when Safari is your default browser and you drag & drop (or copy & paste) links directly to iGetter. This option works in Safari 9 on Yosemite and we look for a new way to implement it on El Capitan.

A workaround is to set Firefox as your default browser. Then login once to all sites from which you download (check "Remember me" option if there is such). You may quit Firefox and then drag & drop (or copy & paste) links from Safari to iGetter.

As usual we suggest using Firefox browser, as it gives the best integration with iGetter. If you use Firefox, you may disable iGetter plugin in Firefox Add-ons -> Plugins page (or type "about:addons"), then select Plugins panel, and choose "Never Activate" for the iGetter plugin. Leave iGetter extension enabled in Add-ons panel. In this case, when the Firefox "Save As" dialog appears, you can select the "iGetter" option to download any file with iGetter.
