    Useful Applications
    Hey guys,

    I'm was told about Quicksilver by one of my friends and in my inquiries on this forum, I was given good reviews.

    Are there any other free and useful applications I need to know about???

    This has been covered countless times in other threads, most recently in this one:
    http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=107518
    So before we all post the same list of apps again, perhaps take a look over at that thread.
