    For me, without a doubt, 99% of my usage is Google Chrome.

    I surf the web a lot (Twitter, Youtube, Khan Academy and Wikipedia for school, eBay for video games, etc)

    The only other apps I really use are Mail, iMessage and iCal.

    I sometimes also use notes, iTunes, Google Drive, and a few others like KeyNote.

    I use Safari extensively, a program called Maple (Version Vr5 under Windows 7/Parallels) and Version 14 for Mac. Word and Excel for Mac, iTunes when really necessary. And Mail.

    Wow! So many apps I've never even heard of. I'm going to have to google a lot of these and see if they can be helpful to me. I didn't realize there was SO many things you can do with a Mac. I'm essentially using mine as an iPad :confused:

    Then there are programs I run frequently:

    Chrome

    And occasionally:

    TextWrangler
    Xcode
    Terminal

    Plus a bunch of other programs that I rarely use but I’m glad I have.

    I googled a lot of these apps I didn't know about.

    Most of them are either video or photo editing software.

    What do you guys do?

    I never take any videos, and occasionally take a photo selfie if I'm at a party or something.
