I've used and recommended CCleaner on Windows since it was first released. I was excited to see that it is now available for Mac. Unfortunately, the Mac version is very, very slow and makes my MacBook Pro run as hot as an oven.

Chrome sucks... it is an over-hyped and over-rated system memory hog... and isn't as secure as many seem to think. Use Firefox.

Fyreflye - Chrome can be downloaded directly from Google. I've downloaded and tested on Mac, Windows and Linux on various occasions going back to 2008. Are you the MU download police?

I have been happily using Trend Smart Surfing since it was in beta. This is a great product!
I have been a Mac user for the past 7 years; and, can definitely say that this is the best anti-virus product that I've ever tried on the Mac.

Trend Micro is a very well respected company for Windows anti-virus protection; especially, in the corporate enterprise.

I am very happy to see Trend Micro enter the Mac world. Welcome!

Trend Smart Surfing has a very clean, intuitive, well-designed interface. Trend Smart Surfing runs with a very small footprint... very low overhead. It doesn't slow down my Mac like Norton or VirusBarrier did.

Good job Trend Micro!

Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac is great!

Burned by OpenOffice is a mediocre alternative to Microsoft Office for some tasks.

No OS level file locking support
Poor tab support in Word documents
Poor cell formatting behavior in Excel spreadsheets

I got burned by OpenOffice. I stuck my neck out as an IT administrator in my company and made a suggestion to use OpenOffice as an alternative to Microsoft Office in order to save money. Management at my company liked the idea and went along with it; half of the company opted to use OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office… we made it a voluntary thing. Anyway, a year later, with the release of 3.0, we start running into many problems that have been identified, and there doesn't seem to be any initiative to resolve these issues by the developers.

Now, we are back to Microsoft Office only as our corporate standard; and, we have purchased several new licenses of Microsoft Office for everyone.

If you're thinking about bringing it into your company to save a little money; my advice: don't waste your time…. buy Microsoft Office.

I can't appreciate your comment. We didn't realize any cost savings.
I'm glad to see that you love OpenOffice so much. Good for you.

Microsoft didn't pay me anything to write a negative review of OpenOffice.
OpenOffice failed miserably all by itself... without any help from Microsoft.

The various good reviews don't really mean anything to me; I'm more concerned with actual results... in real world scenarios. OpenOffice = FAIL.

I've been using PasswordWallet for the past 6-7 years. It is light. It is elegant. It is clean... It is perfect. I've tried other password manager apps that I've rec'd in software giveaways and bundles, but nothing beats PasswordWallet, and I always come back to it.
