Come on compared to the Vista and XP forums this place is dead.. I know enough of you are awesome enough to be using OS X as your primary OS, so share some tips. What software have you found lately that just kicks butt? Here's my $0.02.

TotalTunes Control - has replaced pretty much every iTunes app I had installed (other than Quicksilver triggers etc) - last.fm support, rating, growl etc.

GCALDaemon - finally syncing my google calendar w/ ical (but it really is a pain to setup)

SugarSync - a cross between Mozy and PC/Mac/Mobile syncing

CyberDuck 3 - same FTP, a bit more stable (not that I had many problems before) and lots of new features I haven't even looked at yet

XBMC - so much better than FrontRow

Minefield - better custom builds of Firefox than BonEcho.

One of the few apps I wish I could get on Windows is the mac version of Google Reader Notifier. It's just excellent, much better than the windows version.
