Having recently added a new Intel Core Mac mini to the family, I had to go about (re)installing all those cool/must-have applications. The ever-growing list:
VLC: The media player. ‘Nuff said.
Quicksilver: I’m still fairly new to this one, but so far, it rocks.
NewsFire: Great, straight-forward RSS reader; simple to use and easy on the eyes.
Acquisition: Awesome P2P software from Cocoa whiz Dave Watanabe, who also is responsible for…
Inquisitor: Soup up your search window in Safari with this fast return plug-in.
Style Master: The best application out there for bossing around your CSS sheets to perfection. Buy two!
BitTorrent: Need I say more?
Flickr Uploader: Drag ‘n’ drop your photos on this app to have them sent to your Flickr space; also lets you edit tags and titles.
Backpack: The online version of the Hipster PDA™. Free or $5 a month for extra capabilities. While not a local application, there is a Dashboard widget available for it. Yessh.
High Priority: Cool little toolbar widget that is an even lower-fi version of Backpack.
Firefox: I’ve been giving both this and Camino some use, you know, just to break away from Safari now and again.
Internet Cleanup: Self-explanatory.
And, last but not least…
TextMate: Still fairly new to this all-purpose text editor, but, so far, I’m very impressed with just how versatile it is when it comes to the type of document you’re editing.
Anything else I should be considering?
