VirtualC64 is a user friendly Commodore 64 emulator.

VirtualC64 utilizes a cycle based simulation engine to achieve high compatibility. Although cycle accurate emulation consumes more computing time than, e.g., line based emulation, all modern machines provide enough computing power to imitate a C64 in real-time. VirtualC64 does not yet reach the awesome compatibility of the classical emulators such as Hoxs64, Vice, or Frodo. However, plenty of games are already running and the list of compatible applications grows with every new release. Right now, VirtualC64 supports the following file formats: D64, T64, PRG, P00. more...

I have to modify my earlier comment somewhat. There are still some (partially serious) bugs concerning graphics rendering and audio playback. Doesn't seem to be as stable as Power64 after all. Hmmmm…

Too bad it doesn't load vsf files, because I do prefer VirtualC64 over VICE. The former (v0.9.5.2) is much better, and it has been working flawlessly until now (MBP i7). Power64 seems to have more features, but I don't know if you ever really need them. Anyway, great C64 emulator.
