Thanks for trying to help, John, but the question was not about mobile devices, and not about password managers, either.

Nope, just one question, regarding three browsers.

comment What's a good long-exposure app for the iPhone?
That's also limited to 0.5s, which I realized only after posting the question. That's apparently a limit imposed by the platform -- iOs 7 running on the iPhone 5s. However, now that I upgraded to iOS 8, I'm again looking for a suitable app.

comment How can I upload all photos from a burst on the iPhone?
Thanks, but syncing with a Mac is not the solution I asked for, nor do I have iPhoto on my Mac.

comment What are some good .mbox viewers / editors for OS X?
Thanks. It lets me import the .mbox, search for mails by word or by sender, delete mails I don't want, etc. The only caveats is that it seems to make a copy, so deleting a sensitive mail deletes it only from its copy, and not the original .mbox it imported from. And that it takes several minutes to import a 4GB mailbox even on the 2013 Retina Macbook Pro with 16GB RAM. But, basically, it works.

But don't I need to set up an account to use Mail.app? As I said, I don't want it to sync with any server, just open a local mailbox.

comment USB 2.0 hard disk does not show up
Sorry for the late answer, @username, but I tried multiple USB 2 cables (there wasn't one that shipped with the disc as far as I remember), and the problem occurs no matter what cable I use. Two of my external hard discs also support a Firewire interface in addition to USB, so I purchased a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter to get them to work. Firewire and Thunderbolt supply enough power, as I understand.

I purchased one, but it didn't work. Thanks for the tip, anyway.

comment How do I create a DMG file from a directory?
How does one create a DMG of the smallest size for the given folder? I'm referring both to the size of the .dmg file, and to the size of the filesystem when it's later mounted. If I'm compressing a 73MB folder, I'd like both of these to be 73MB + the minimal filesystem overhead. I'd also like the .dmg to be compressed, so that it takes up less space. Are these possible? I see no options for these two in Disk Utility, on Mavericks.
