Missing site exemption

This is one of the most useful utilities. Apple messed up everything when they broke a bunch of extensions so they could control everything. This *new* version works the same as the old version, but it's missing the ability to exempt sites. This makes browsing shopping sites very annoying. If they would add this feature back in, I would gladly give five stars

Developer Response ,

This is planned for a future release. Appreciate the feedback and continued support!

Great Extension, used for years

I've used the legacy version for years, one of my most used Safari extensions. So when Apple broke them I felt it was fair to pay for the development of the extension going forward (plus I didn't want to live without it). I read the negative reviews and the developer's response that features are being added. I've found this to be true. At this point Hoversee seems to be working exactly as is was in the free version except I can't exempt a domain. Hopefully this feature will be added back shortly.

seemingly useless

I had an extension similar to this a few years back and used it all the time, but I couldn't find it again. So I bought this one and it is pointless. It barely supports any previews, so it's basically useless. Not worth it at all.
