    Howdy!

    I just wanted to see if we could throw together a list of the greatest native cocoa applications available.

    To start it off, here are a few that qualify to the best of my knowledge:

    1. Adium - chat
    2. Bean - word processor
    3. Camino - web browser (sorta cocoa)
    4. Coda - web development
    5. Seashore - basic image editor
    6. Smultron - text editor
    7. Transmission - torrent

    Please correct me and/or suggest others, thank you!

    :D

    Camino isn't 100% cocoa as it's a cocoa wrapper around gecko - depends on how pendantic you wanna be, I guess ;)

    I'd add to the list:

    PixelMator - low-price Photoshop wannabe
    Vector Designer - low-price Illustrator wannabe
    TextMate - text editor
    CSSEdit - does what it says on the tin ;)
    Nisus Writer Pro - candidate for best WP on the platform
    Omniweb - web browser
    Omnigraffle - charting/diagramming
    Pathfinder - file manager

    If you have Coda in there, you should also have Transmit on the list :D

    Others that should be in there as well:

    NetNewsWire
    AppZapper
    TextMate
    SubEthaEdit
    OmniOutliner

    The apps I mentioned are ones I have used for years and consider the best of the best as far as Cocoa apps go (as well as Adium, Transmission, and Coda) :)
