1. Quicksilver – Application launcher/switcher, copies and moves files, global hotkeys, multi-item clipboard, web searching, calculator, dock replacement, the kitchen sink. Free.
2. Desktop Manager – A desktop switcher that’s useful and has cool effects. This application is especially useful when I’m on a computer with only one monitor. Free.
3. Magic Number Machine – A calculator that does enough without doing too much and still manages to look great. This has replaced the default OS X calculator for me. Free.
6. WindowShade X – There wasn’t a whole lot that I liked about OS9, but windoshading was one of the things that impressed me. This app from Unsanity brings back that functionality. Shareware.
7. MenuCalendarClock – A quick calendar that resides in the top bar. I just use the basic functionality so it’s free.
8. ChiliSafe – Customizable secure password manager and generator. Free.
9. Font Sampler – A great way to compare multiple fonts on text you choose at one time. I use this application every time I design anything. Free.
10. Smultron – An excellent text editor with ActionsScript (and many others) syntax highlighting. Free.
That took longer than I though. Ten for today and I’ll add more soon…
