    just wondering what utillities everyone uses and loves
    for me its
    A-dock (app launcher)
    Kaleidoscope (scheme changer)
    Finderpop(contextual menus)
    Gravite (something fun for drag n drop)
    Navi iRae (more contextual menus)
    Power Windows (Like mac os x dragging windows effect)
    Smooth Type (for my lucida grande font)
    and TaskBar Menu(for the task bar menu)

    there are heaps but this is what I use
    hope to see what people use for their OS

    I used to use..

    some of those with OS 9 but Now I dont every boot into 9 anymore so... I havent really used them. I recently got my dad to move from OS 8.1 to 9.2.2. it was a big deal for him. I hooked him up with A-dock... very cool app.


    I used A-dock and Kaleidoscope to make my OS 9 look like OS X when my old mac didnt have the disk space or the CPU to run OS X very well... now that I have OS X i dont need any of that stuff..

    Ah good to see someone found taskmenubar. very cool app.

    here are my osx utilities:
    TurboMem
    TransparentDock
    CacheControl X
    Memory Usage Getter
    WinCompress
    Mox Optimize
    Memogram
    Gmem
    WindowShadeX
    TinkerTool
    XWirelessConfig

    for OS 9:
    WindowMonkey
    taskmenubar
    SmartScroll
    NaturalOrder
    TitleFree
    OpcolourLite
    ExtensionOverload
    IconTools
    iControl
    Liquid

    As you can see i use a lot of stuff. but i can get os9 to load in under a minute (on my 333mhz g3 with 66mhz bus) and osx is now pretty tolerable as far as speed goes.
