Sorry if something similar to this has already been posted, but what are the applications (for Mac OS X) that you couldn't live without? For me personally it would be Mail, FireFox (as Safari handles online banking very poorly) and iPhoto. The applications don't have to be made by Apple, they can be third party, shareware, freeware etc. Hopefully this thread will give ideas to other people who use Mac OS X the range of good software out there available to try. I've been thinking o buying Cocktail - however don't know if it's worth it? Post your thoughts!
