    I usually am either browsing the internet for knowledge with Safari, making 2D invention models in Keynote, composing music with GarageBand, sorting/shopping for/listening to music in iTunes, typing a document in Word or checking/composing email in Mail. Easy, simplistic and fast.

    The most common thing I do? That's easy.

    Browsing Macrumors and responding to random threads.

    iTunes, Firefox, Mail and TextWrangler are all running almost constantly.

    Transmission and Photoshop aren't that uncommon, either.

    Sat on an edit suite most of my life staring at the Final Cut Pro interface.

    I swear I'm starting to get a timeline and footage bin burned into my retinas. Every time I look at someone I instinctively start to trim footage of them in the Viewer. :rolleyes:

    I make it a clean mix of web (FF), IM (Adium), and mail (Mail), with more of those three than iPhoto and iTunes....

    But I don't understand how you can make a poll like this and not make pr0n an explicit option... :D

    Most commonly running in background: Quicksilver

    Otherwise it's Safari/iTunes tied.

    Mail, Safari and iTunes are always open. So's EyeTV.

    At the moment, iSquint is probably my busiest app as I'm converting loads of video for my iPod. :)

    iCal always open but I use Safari the most. Second place would be iTunes.

    The applications that I use the most are Camino and Firefox. Don't use Safari that much, for some reason.

    My top ones, in no particular order:

    FileMaker
    Photoshop
    Safari
    Notes
    OmniGraffle Professional
    Preview

    That was my first thought as well, but the poll is officially asking about applications, not activities, so it's probably covered under browser use and QuickTime. :p

    wouldn't the Finder be an application? if so then the Finder would be what I use the most ;) Otherwise... iChat, Safari, Mail, textEdit, iTunes, iPhoto... hard to say but all those are open everyday including the addressbook, photosohp... etc..
