I fancy downloading and installing something cool. What do you recommend and why?

In all seriousness *cough* mad_jew *cough* I would suggest Synergy and Adium. Synergy is a app that puts iTunes controls in your menu bar. I find it very convinient and well worth the $6.13 that it costs. Adium is Mac's answer to Trillian, except better. It is highly cusotmizable and is free. Both can be found at Version Tracker...

well i was after personal recomendations. Doesnt have to be a particular app for a particular thing. Chances are if one person finds it cool another will also. Afterall the cool people use macs right?

AcidSearch to extend Safari's toolbar search field to whatever searches you want.
This sounds useful as I've been wondering if it's possible to change the google search to use the .co.uk site instead of .com

Does it work with Tiger? It says it only works with Panther but perhaps they haven't updated the website yet.

Works just fine. I actually didn't install it until after I upgraded to Tiger (since Firefox was my preferred browser under Panther).

An added bonus is that AcidSearch lets you enable a "Find As You Type" search for current pages too... :)

It's quite easy to add more searches. I use some of these every day (but a few is just for the h*** of it ;)):

Thanks for the info, will go and download it now.

I've also downloaded Taboo but not installed it yet. I'm also more used to Firefox (recently switched from Windows) and was hoping there was a way of enabling warnings when closing windows/tabs in Safari. Thanks for pointing this out :)
