If you want to try it, please try it with testnet account, account with small balances, small transaction size, in that order. Because even though there is no known bug to me, after all this is a one man job. There could be bugs that I haven't seen yet.
To change server to testnet server, check "Online mode" under Network settings. Testnet server address can be found here https://xrpl.org/xrp-testnet-faucet.html. After changing server, please restart the client because server reconnection is not handled very well in ripple-lib.
Note that it may take a short while for it to connect for the very first time.
