    In no particular order :

    Diskwave
    Keka
    MPlayerX/VLC (it's good to have both)
    iTunes
    Albert (some people prefer quicksilver)
    OpenOffice
    Chrome
    Time Machine
    Dropbox
    Flux
    Caffeine
    Seashore
    Xee
    Moxier Wallet
    Nocturne
    Mirage

    Yes that is way more than ten but I can't abandon some of those trusty apps.

    Specs:
    21" iMac 2.9Ghz 16GB RAM - 10.11.3, iPhone6s & iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.2.1, ATV 4Th Gen tvOS, ATV3
    Adium ~ Chat Client
    Growl Notifications
    SuperDuper or CarbonCopyCloner ~ Both make bootable copies of your HD
    HandBrake ~ Video Converting
    Burn ~ As it says A Burning App
    Transmission ~ p2p client
    Skitch ~ Screen capture and more
    VLC ~ Video player that plays most codecs and does a lot more
    Perian and Flip4Mac Makes watching certain codecs easier ... This is Essential IMHO
    Audacity ~ Play with Music App
    CandyBar ~ Mods all your icons, and dock
    MainMenu or Oynx ~ Does the same as Disk utility only more thorough
    Quicksilver ~ Works like Spotlight but way way better and does so much more
    StuffitExpander ~ Opens Zip and rar files and more
    Lil Snitch ~ Firewall type App that looks at your incoming and outgoing traffic
    and last but certainly not least .....
    AppTrap ~ Once installed it sits in System Preferences and deletes all associated files of anything that you put in the trash ...
    Just a few

    Forgot to put my own in:

    Perian - not strictly an app but a good all-in-one codec pack
    SuperDuper - for cloning disks
    Firefox - I still have problems with Safari so it's necassary
    XBMC/Boxee - Still the best media playing suites
    Handbrake - For re-encoding video files
    Skype - use it all the time for my website
    Twitter - same as above
    GIMP - For some more advanced image manipulation
    Dropbox - for image hosting for my site.
    FileZilla - Great FTP program.
