I normally wouldn't post this, because I
don't tend to agree with the list, but the Digg kids are all piling on top of it, so I thought I should share here:
it's a list of 10 apps
every new Mac user should download.
Here's my take on the list:
- AdiumX is nice, but I'll stick with iChat. I like iChat. If I need to use all those other protocols, maybe I'll launch Fire.
- Cyberduck rocks. I like it. *But* I've been using Fugu recently. It rocks better and harder.
- Safari is a better browsing experience on OS X than Firefox. Firefox is great and all, but it doesn't integrate nicely with all the OS X goodness like the built in Dictionary and spellcheck, not to mention Services. Until it can do that nicely, Safari wins (especially if you load up Saft).
- iBackup.... eh. I'll stick with Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper, thanks.
- Nvu... uh, no. This is not something that every new Mac user should download. There are lots of people not coding websites who don't need this one.
- Quicksilver rocks, but I find if you get used to Spotlight and don't mind the slight delay, you don't use it as much.
- Stuffit Expander? I mean you need it, but isn't it already on the System when you buy it?
- TextWrangler is nice, but I'll have to say they should have mentioned SubEthaEdit.
- VLC is good.
- Windows Media Player?! Why is this on a top ten?
