This also means apps no longer need to secretly install Growl. More info on their note to developers. Growl is still open source, too, and there's a link to the source code on that page as well. Google Chrome Google Chrome is a lightweight, minimalistic web browser based off the open source project, Chromium.
Though some Firefox features still aren't matched in Chrome, I nowadays find myself mostly using Chrome on OS X because it's just so much faster. Quote of the day : "I just ditched Firefox for Chrome. I feel like I just left my wife and kids for a 19 year old cheerleader. Chrome has also had a lot of trouble with caching specifically clearing cache in the recent releases.

As a web developer, it's a huge problem. I'm on the verge of moving back to FF. After Lion came out, I switched to Safari because Chrome is way too slow at adapting the goodness. Homebrew "The missing package manager for OS X". Beats MacPorts and Fink right out the water!

I love homebrew. Much better than MacPorts. Uses existing libraries that come with OS X to cut down compile times. Soon to be not so missing when the Mac app store comes out Ricket: I think those are orthogonal. Ricket - It will never make the app store. It has too much functionality that significantly violates the ridiculous app store guidelines.
Xcode A good IDE for cocoa developers. Xcode 5 is now available on the Mac App Store. Mathias Well.. They say that if you pay up the developer's licence it is? Xcode4 is free again. Xcode is great. It is the reason I got a Mac. VLC media player At its simplest, it's a video player that'll play nearly anything. I really can't stand VLC. Buggy, extremely difficult to configure, ugly as hades Why should I have to be an expert in video and audio codecs to configure my player? Movist beats this one by far. I've never had luck with VLC. It is constantly crashing, and terribly buggy. Seconding Movist a hundred times.
I always loved VLC It's listed here already and it's awesome!
Never configured anything on VLC, it works for me out of the box, with flv, wmv, mkv, mp4, avi, mov, mpeg. Unexpected crashes do happen, you have to deal with it, but other than that, it's great. I use PasswordWallet for the same thing, but either seems crucial. Oct 16 '10 at LastPass does the same thing for a lot less money, and it's available cross-platform including Linux so you can keep your passwords synced regardless of where you are and what system you're on.
TextMate TextMate brings Apple's approach to operating systems into the world of text editors. TextMate 2. It's funny, Textmate, along with a browser and Terminal is open almost all the time on my desktop, but whilst it's a great text editor I could 'live' with the alternatives. The CMD T shortcut would be hard for me to live without.
If you're into TextMate, have a look at Sublime Text 2. You won't be disappointed. Alfred Alfred is a productivity application for Mac OS X, which aims to save you time in searching your local computer and the web. Buy the 'PowerPack' for this - it adds even more functionality.
Alfred is a really nice little utility - replaced QuickSilver for me. File control, iTunes, I like Alfred the way it is right now. Best powerpack feature: clipboard history. I can now "copy up" three things, then paste them back out in whatever order I like. My best friend.

I love Alfred. I switched from Quicksilver, though I'm admittedly not a QS poweruser. Although it still doesn't support drag-and-drop, which is incredibly frustrating. I usually end up using the now-unsupported VisualHub. Sorin Why is that? I don't think iChat will be able to connect to all those accounts cl. It can do many! Even Facebook. Yeah not all of them but some of those are pretty obscure.
I must say the iChat updates in Lion made me ditch Adium. Perian Perian is a free, open source QuickTime component that adds native support for many popular video formats. Perian developers decided to cease any further development on Perian. There won't be any new releases or fixes for MKV support if nobody stakes over. For those with servers there is even a slick web-ui. Great simple app.

Robert S Ciaccio. The Unarchiver team also provide a command line utility urar that uses the same compression library, so you can extract all those obscure formats from a script. This is my default archive extract utility. Caffeine Caffeine is a tiny program that puts an icon in the right side of your menu bar. I use InsomniaX - any idea how it compares to Caffeine? I've never really understood these. When do you want this? I up-voted the comment about InsomniaX but actually wanted to recommend InsomniaX 2. Transmit 4 is awesome. I used Cyberduck for a long time, but I recently checked out Transmit 4 and was quite impressed.
But not today. Skype With skype, you can make Voice and video calls to anyone else on Skype Conference calls with three or more people Instant messaging, file transfer and screen sharing. Sadly, Beta 5 is as awful as a UI can get. The problem with skype now is that was bought from Microsoft.
I don't think they will be keeping good.
