    Google them for more info:

    Taco HTML Edit (If you're into HTML)
    PodTube (Downloading vids from YouTube)

    ..err that is all that comes to mind. Sad, I know. There are tons of apps, checkout MacUpdate for more. I'm sure someone else will be able to point out more.

    Edit: Maybe have some fun with widgets?

    You mean other than all the stuff that comes free with OS X? :p

    Try http://osx.iusethis.com/ there's loads of stuff on there.

    Inquisitor makes Safari so much better, that's my top pick

    Flip4mac is key - allows multiple types of videos to play through quicktime.

    Neo Office is a good choice for an office program.

    Definitely a necessity, but I also agree with an earlier poster that VLC is needed. Quicktime chokes on a lot of different video formats but VLC plays anything I throw at it.
