    Do any of you guys know if anyone's made an ordered list like this? Like maybe, the top 50, with #1 being the best ever.

    I tried Googling it, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I thought that you guys might have it. If not, then I'll make a list myself :p

    If I have to come to that, what 10 apps would you want me to put in? Please try to make no more than five of them first-party, for I want to focus on third-party apps. Also, games, plugins and prefpanes don't count.

    Here are mine:

    Itunes
    Safari
    Bean
    Quicksilver
    Ichat
    Automator
    Garageband
    Candybar
    Scrivener
    Seashore

    Thanks in advance, everyone!

    -Key Xing, by far the best hotkey app ever, but discontinued years ago for some unknown reason. Developer went under about a year ago I think.
    -Little Snitch

    Those are my two favs.

    Life Chronometer

    My favorite app of all time, for any OS, is an early 1990s MacOS freeware app called Life Chronometer: You tell it when you were born and when you expect to die; from then on, the software displays a running countdown of the number of hours (day?) you have left. Talk about a motivational tool.
