    I was wondering what everyone considered an essential download for their Mac? I just got a new iBook and for me personally, two things I could never live without are Firefox and the VLC Media Player.

    The latter is the best option I have found for playing any video file no matter what codec was used. Even with the updated third party codecs installed, Quicktime seems to have problem with a lot of video files downloaded from places such as p2p, etc.

    One thing Ive looked into is a Trillian like client, does anyone have a recommendation?

    This is gonna sound sound a bit harsh, but try searching the forums. There have been quite a few thread on this topic.


    Congrats on the iBook. :)

    Was just about to link the same thing... one question though which came to my mind. Many are rightly recommending LittleSnitch however if not mistaken this is not Freeware. It's only a demo with a 3 day expiry ??
