    I was actually thinking it would be quite interesting to share the list of titles that we will absolutely not do without on OS X, so here's my little list:

    1. 1Passwd - brilliant! I will buy this one and pay upgrade fees for it till the end of time!
    2. Typinator - Awesome stuff!!
    3. Chronosync - it is kind of a time-machine wannabe thing, but great for syncing files across macs if you have more than 1 machine.
    4. Hazel - Great for automating file cleaning/organisation tasks for those of you with desktops filled with 9999 files.

    Just figured that since I learnt about these apps on another forum in a thread like this, perhaps starting another one on MR sharing these titles with others... and reading up on other members' favourite apps can be quite insightful as well!

    If the developers of AI Roboform port to Mac, 1Passwd is history (at least on my machines). I have better luck with the Mac Keychain.

    Roboform is what it should be.

    In what way is roboform better than 1pw?

    I have not used roboform yet so I am not sure what features it has that 1pw does not.

    Where to start... ;)

    It would be easier to show you directly, but look at http://www.roboform.com/ for better feature descriptions than I can give. If you're Bootcamping or VM'ing Windows, d/l a copy (free for like 25-30 passwords) and give it a spin.

    Not that 1PW is bad -- it's the best thing for Mac in that area right now -- I just find Roboform to be more robust, fully-featured, and intuitive.

    Amen

    I'd be lost without it, I mean at 59 with "CRS" it's on all my PC's. Already miss it on Safari for PC, and it's only day 1:D

    My first thought is that we may get a Safari plug-in -- cross-platform, hopefully!

    They are freeware, not shareware (shareware is cheap software that goes to a developer, or a few of them)

    I LOVE SIXTYFORCE :)

    Hum, lets see...

    1. 1passwd
    2. Bookbog
    3. Chronosync
    4. Cocktail
    5. Fetch (got this one free through school)
    6. iClip (once you get use to using it, it is great)
    7. NewsFire (from the Machiest contest)
    8. Superduper (great for backups that i do once a week)
    9. TextMate (again, from Machiest. I use this a lot for my assembly programming classes)
    10. iTuneSleep (nice simple alarm clock app)

    I really like all of these and they get used pretty much every day.

    Two apps for sure: Quicksilver and Yep. Quicksilver being the most. I cannot use any computer without it now.
