    Congratulations... This is my first mac too, got it the first day it came out... Get Adium beta, which will replace Trillian for you... OnyX is free and acts like Norton Utilities for Mac. I used Firefox for a while, but now switched to OmniWeb which is supposedly the fastest browser for Mac. Firefox is supposed to be pretty slow as it does not take advantage of WebKit in OS X, but I felt like Firefox was faster. Play with iPhoto which is an improved version of MS Photo Manager coming in XP.

    You are gonna love it...

Anyways, thank you so much for al the info posted on here daily.
