I found this site gives a nice comprehensive list of software for switchers
Check out the sticky threads in the Switcher Hangout as well. They're very helpful"Id rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy"

Xee - image viewer
Browse pictures in the same folder. Very customizable.
The Unarchiver - self explanatory ;p
Can unZIP/unRAR/un-almost anything.
Renamer4Mac - mass file/folder renaming tool
Very useful if you're a neat freak and want to keep your files & folders well named. (Ahem... not me of course)
MenuMeters - CPU, memory, disk, and network activity monitor (in Menu Bar)
I mainly use it to see my upload/download activity. Pretty customizable.
Oh, and one last one in my signature. ;p (Click the "Development" link.)
