    I rarely install 3rd party programs on my Macbook Pro. However when there's something I want to try out I will. Most dont have an uninstaller. What is the best way to uninstall a program in Leopard?

    Appzapper and Appcleaner both claim to delete all files associated with the app you are deleting.

    And the great thing about AppCleaner is it is FREE!

    Most of the time the 3rd party apps don't install a lot of junk other than a small plist file anyways, so even if you just drag it to the Trash it isn't really hogging any resources.

    +1 for AppCleaner. It works like a charm.
