    I want to know what little system utility apps people use that they couldn't imagine living without / they have gotten so used to them they can't work on other people's computers without!

    I will start with mine:

    • SizeUp - Window management
    • Bowtie - iTunes desktop notifier / controller
    • Growl - Desktop level system notifications
    • DockDodger - Ability to hide running applications from showing up in the dock
    • 1Password - Password manager that integrates beautifully with Safari/Firefox
    • USB Overdrive X - Allows setting of USB device buttons, such as a mouse button, to any shortcut.

    I tried quicksilver for a while but couldn't get into it.

    I also thought of another:

    • Namely - Application only spotlight tool
