Freeverse Sound Studio 3
- if you ever used the Sound Forge audio editor on Windows, this is the closest thing I've found on Mac.
Audio Ease Snapper
- lets you play QT-compliant audio files from Finder with a waveform display, and lets you select portions and drag to a new file. Even plays audio from movie files!
some components to play FLAC files in QT (and Snapper!) (free)
- excellent utility for browsing samples, with integrated editing and more
XLD Lossless audio converter (free)
- converts FLAC files to Apple lossless format so you can play them in iTunes
Free utility to remap MIDI messages of various types
- lets you tweak extra stuff in Finder, the Dock etc. Nothing you can't do in terminal but this saves a lot of research and typing time by presenting everything in a nice preference-style interface.
- the only app that lets me restore my hackintosh backup disk image properly!
- really easy-to-use and efficient DVD ripping/video conversion app
Defaults Manager (free)
- useful tool to view and edit .plist (preferences) files

I've been looking a long time for a Finder replacement and now I found. Path Finder reminds me to KDE's Konqueror in his almightiness as a GUI app :
-Dual Pane / Tabs
-98% perfect integration in OS X
-show hidden files
-build in Terminal
-Path Finder Desktop
-and a lot more very cool features

Here is a comparison on that sight of some of the best free browsers on the internet:
The premier web browser across the internet, Firefox offers unmatched expandability through customizable themes, extensions and add-ons. Firefox typically uses less memory than competing browsers and is extremely fast with good security. Huge amounts of custom functionality can be added through free add-ons including form fillers, speed dialing… practically anything you can imagine.
An extremely well baked system which is based on the Safari engine and includes features like speed dialing and mouse gestures to get you where you want to go. It includes a note function (to record thoughts on the go) and has a clean minimalist design. The interface is well thought out and runs well even on older or slower systems.
Shira is a fantastic browser to use for a short time, but it should not be your main system. Shiira is a very pretty browser with features like full screen view (worthwhile to have just for this!), sensible graphic tabs and an expose function for tabs similar to Mac’s desktop expose. Built on the Safari engine, Shiira doesn’t score perfect marks due to unresolved bugs in bookmark organization. Reviews from both Macworld and Softpedia examine Shiira in more detail.
Internet users spend a lot of time going from one site to the next, keeping up with a variety of friends and interests. Flock, built on the Firefox engine, pulls all of your favorite people, places and content together in a convenient view and delivers a more personal and connected experience of the web. Flock includes features like embedded blog editing, photo-up-loader and a featured social networking sidebar and if you are constantly managing your social networking then Flock may be right for you! Here is one user’s review.

Bravotunes controls Itunes from the menu.
Cinch is a mac version of the windows 7 "Snap" idea
and Growl is an alert app that you configure to certain
apps and it will tell you whether you have got an email or someone
sent you a message through Ichat etc.

CoRD Remote desktop. Downloads.
An universal RDP client for accessing those Windows machines. The official Microsoft one is as good as this one, but it's not universal. And we all know that rosetta sucks.
I just found CoRD last week and it is ever SO much better than RDP. I have to VPN from home quite a bit and this is faster and cleaner. The biggest advantage is running multiple sessions. I was able to have 12 different sessions running and it was very easy to switch between each one without getting lost. And yes I did say 12. We have so many systems I need to access for work. Not to mention the systems here at home.
I highly recommend this for anyone who has multiple systems. It just works.
