    I am reaching the limit of my broadband allowance, which is 40GB a month. I have no idea why I used so much. Perhaps my downloads for my new Macbook Pro?

    1/ Is there a reliable 'kilobyte-counter? How can I monitor how many kilobytes I am using from the internet?
    2/ I have been looking for a chart that breaks down, or estimates how many kilobytes are used by different webpages. Not a happy hunt.
    3/ I cannot find on my Macbook Pro a list of all my applications, programs,etc and their size. Any ideas?

    1. iStat can monitor how much data you have downloaded and uploaded.

    3. E.g. OmniDiskSweeper shows files ranked by their size

    there's also DaisyDisk, it presents your files as a pie diagram but it's a paid program, so you may become an outlaw (torrentz!). I really like DaisyDisk. you should try it.
