    yea def keep rolling with firefox, not a fan of safari. as far as mail, i don't use mail anymore like I used to on a pc (thunderbird). I didn't like the mail app for mac so I just check my gmail via a bookmark, which I like better

    ...and done. :bowdown:

    Really, all I use is:

    Cyberduck
    MAMP - Easy local MySQL/PHP installer
    Textedit
    Photoshop

    Although, I have been using Coda recently because of its project capabilities, tabbed interface, and auto-complete.

    Cocoa Mysql is discontinued, use Sequel Pro instead.

    My must have apps are:
    Firefox, Adium, Quicksilver, Vuze, Grand Perspective, Path Finder, Connect 360, Multiclutch (New macbooks only), Adobe CS4, MAcports, Open Office, Skype, Texk Wrangler, VLC, VMWare Fusion

    EDIT: Oh, and I'm a java developer so IntelliJ Idea, Apache Tomcat, Mysql. I also have a bunch of scripts that I use regularly that I transfer as well. Also, I use Synergy like crazy for sharing multiple computers with one keyboard/mouse.
