Best Free Mac OS X Applications

OS X Logo
Recently I upgraded to a new Mac. I like to install applications from scratch when I upgrade, as it allows me to clean out all the garbage that I didn’t need in the first place. So I’ve compiled a list of all the best free applications I like to have installed on my Mac.

Must have’s:

  • Adium – ICQ/MSN/GTalk client
  • Growl – universal notification
  • Quicksilver – excellent replacement for Spotlight
  • Cyberduck – SFTP/FTP Client
  • Google Notifier – GMail notifier
  • HandBrake – DVD to MPEG converter (iPhone, Apple TV etc!)
  • DivX for Mac – Video player
  • MAMP – Apache/Mysql/PHP wrapped up in a single download!
  • NeoOffice – Sun’s Star Office for the Mac
  • RDC – Beta version of Remote Desktop from Microsoft.  Access Windows Machines remotely.
  • Skype
  • Firefox

Nice to have:

  1. Those are good, you should also try Last.FM, VLC, AppCleaner to completly remove applications, Taco HTML for editing web sites and Onyx to keep all that cleen!

    Have a nice day.
