    Just got a new Macbook, wondering what everyone's must have apps are.

    Thought it might be good to create a listing of all of them?

    Post them and I'll edit this first post.

    EDITORS
    -------------
    Coda
    TextMate
    Komodo IDE

    FTP
    -------------
    Transmit
    FileZilla

    DESIGN
    ------------
    Photoshop
    GIMP

    BROWSERS
    ------------
    Firefox + Firebug (addon)

    MISC
    ------------
    MAMP - use your mac as a local web server
    Paparazzi - takes full size screenshots, not just your screen, but the whole browser window
    OpenOffice
    iTerm - SSH bookmarks, and the ability to map them to a hot key.

    VIRTUALIZATION
    ---------------------
    VMWare Fusion

    +1 for vmware fusion. I run a windows 7 VM for sql management studio & visual studio (also for IE checks).. I also run Linux VMs for development. (web + asterisk)

    I prefer filezilla as a FTP client.

    Coda is lame. Komodo IDE with the server browser addon is amazing. It does native VI key mappings as well.

    iTerm will give you SSH bookmarks, and the ability to map them to a hot key.

    Openoffice runs well on Mac...

    what exactly is the server browser addon?

    anyone have any experience in vmware vs. parallels?

    parallels sucks, vmware fusion does not.

    The server addon gives you a side bar view of FTP server & their contents for live editing.

    VMWare is pure awesome for development.

    For me, I write my iPhone Apps in XCode, I have my VM running in the background as my server, I can bounce back and forth to it to test all my serverside crap :bowdown:
