As a Mac newby I have found a good few apps listed here, but I have found these ones to be my favourites (some have already been posted, some haven't)-

Appcleaner - great free uninstaller

LiveQuartz - great simple and free image editor (includes layers etc)

Nice Player - great free video player which borrows Quicktimes codecs

Transmission - great free bit torrent client now with selective downloading!!

I don't know- never tried AppZapper, but by the look of the screenshots on it's website they look very similar. But AppCleaner works a treat, and saves lot's of hassle deleting those folders etc that are always left behind, and it's FREE (yay!).

I forgot to mention, the reason why I like Nice Player is 1) it is borderless, and looks dead smart 2) by default it is always on top of other windows, which is an option you don't have at all with Quicktime unfortunately.

I also love Inquisitor 3 for Safari. It is donationware still, and I used it for free for a week till I decided to donate $5. It is a superb plug-in for Safari, which allows instant Google results while you type in your search bar (amount is user adjustable) as well as multiple search engines to be incorporated into it too, which the user again can add to. I have added my favourite websites searches like Wikipedia, Imdb, btJunkie etc etc. Love it.

Forgot one- Skype

One thing a lot of people might not realise with Skype for Mac- it can be used to have video chats with Windows users! Not only that, but the quality is great too, and you also get to meet lots of other users from around the world while you're at it. I have tried a few others (iChat on my Mac with Windows using Aim, Sightspeed) and they have been a let down one way or another. Skype works perfectly on Mac and Windows for me and my family (blimey, I'm begining to sound like an advert!!)

Sorry, I can't edit my last post to put these new links in, so I am having to post again (so no moaning at me please).

I have found another 2 great free Safari plug-ins, which both work well with Safari 3-

Cool Iris - This has been out on other browsers, but I have only just noticed they have done a Safari version. However, the Safari version only works with popular search sites like Google, Yahoo etc. It is also available for Firefox, and can give previews of any link instead of just search result links.

PicLens - A great way to browse image search results (Google image search etc).

JumpCut - is an application that provides "clipboard buffering" — that is, access to text that you've cut or copied, even if you've subsequently cut or copied something else.

Remote Buddy is crazy... seems like quite a piece of software, but complicated at first.

LightMe

Allows you to switch off the display using a keyboard shortcut. Insanely handy if you have an iMac that you leave running at night.

I've been looking for something like this. I've found other ones but they only work while logged in. I noticed that this one has a "install at Login" and I was hoping that it would work while at the login window. It didn't work so what exactly does that button do? Anybody?
