aMSN is horrible :p

http://www.panic.com/unison - for Usenet access :)

For just downloading, Unison is OK, however if you intend to post anything, Unison won't do it (yet). The best combination for that is Thoth (newsreader) and Osiris (autoposter). Unfortunately, Thoth is no longer being developed, but Osiris will also work with MTNewswatcher.

LOL Babelizer is a fun toy which used bablefish to convert back and forth between two languages.

Try "You can ring my bell." or "think different" into Korean.

SkyFox

Did someone mention Handbrake, because if not, they should have. It's a superb DVD-ripping application.

Remember, no sharing though! ;)

Address Book Exporter.

Crucial for me to keep both my Address Book upto date (for Phone / iPod) and then my Gmail contacts upto date (Import...). It would be nice if there was a way to sync Gmail contacts rather than delete and re import, but its better than manual inserting them... :D

Might have to look at this then... Might be better suited... Hmmm..

AddressBookToCSV 1.1

AddressBookToCSV is a one trick pony whose purpose in (artificial) life is to export contacts from the Mac OS X Address Book to a form gmail can import...

Edit - I just read it doesn't allow you to select Address Book groups, ONLY the whole book... Maybe my original suggestion is better after all... :laugh:

PDF Browser Plugin lets you view your .pdf document in a browser window. Tested on Firefox and Safari. This is a must for anyone in college, who has to view like 10 .pdf documents everyday.

SubEthaEdit - http://codingmonkeys.de/

With SubEthaEdit you can. The idea of collaborative editing has been researched for years, with notable results. But now for the first time it has been implemented in a way you actually want to use: A sophisticated technique allows all users to type anywhere in the text without locking parts of the text for other users, making SubEthaEdit just as easy to use as a traditional text editor
