    Name 'em! Those great little apps that you have found that work in osX, do what they should, and are FREE! Provide a link also, if possible.

    The reason I bring this up is because I pulled down Captain FTP 1.31 off of download.com and I really like it.
    Also, BBEdit Lite 6.1 (html editing) and its a great little program that is a lot of raw html editing. Very nice.

    Captian FTP:

    BBEdit HTML Source:

    I'm sure many of you already know about these programs - as well as many other great ones - so please, enlighten me. Thanks!

    The award goes to...

    Watson.

    I love that little program, and I am really pissed that Apple is stealing it with Sherlock 3. They need to at least give that guy something. (Apple offered him a job at regular salary as a token-big whoop)

    Anyway, there's another fine program called GradeKeeper that is very useful in keeping/averaging students' grades.

    Just my 2¢
