Wow thanks for doing the 2007 update to this! This is seriously a mac users dream. There are a lot of applications in there that I'm tempted to buy but I'm waiting for OS X 10.5 and for applications to support that before I go buying a bunch of programs. Still plently of free ones for me to check out!

I use the following and find them very useful on a day-to-day basis (and quick too):
- The Unarchiver: Archive unarchiver (Free)
- Xee: Image viewer (Free)

Some applications which I've tried in the past and I think are worth mentioning:
- Menuet: Menubar iTunes controller ($12.95)
- Remote Buddy: Remote control feature.. extender. It adds a lot of functionality to your remote which would previously had only been used for Frontrow. (19.99 €)
- Acqlite: Free alternative to Acquisition (Free)

Good thing I ran into this thread. I completely forgot about Shiira (I was following development of that until I stopped using OS X) and Vienna (looks better than Endo :p). Thanks for the thread. I need to be re-updated with the latest applications for OS X.

You might want to add MT-NewsWatcher under Usenet clients. While it doesn't have the slick interface of Unison, it is free and has some features that Unison doesn't. A good companion to it is Osiris, which automates posting with either it or Thoth (another newsreader that has been discontinued, although it is still distributed as shareware).

Unfortunately, it appears that Acqlite has been discontinued in development. I read some comments and that was what is causing it not to connect. I forgot about Cabos though! That is also a great P2P application.
