I'm afraid to say proper "undo" and "redo" is still as absent as ever...

Hmmm. Promising alternative to my current image viewer sequential. For now, sequential beats Viewer hands down when it comes to both speed, stability and functionality, but sequential doesn't seem to be updated anymore, so therefore i'm looking for alternatives.
I really think Viewer has potential though. It's minimal, simple, looks rather ok (it falls short of being beautiful though) - just what i look for in an application. But, for now, it doesn't have what it takes to become the default image viewer, at least on my computer.

Cons (IMHO, of course):
- HUD instead of a proper main window. It's not wrong, just look weird.
- Doesn't remember (or keep) previous window size and position.
- Sometimes opens up obscured by (overlaps behind) the dock.
- All animations are jerky/laggy (Quad + 6750m iMac)
- Thumbnail mode in fullscreen has no pointer to select with.
- Zoom is rather clumsily implemented, and not very smooth.
- Perhaps it's too minimalistic (never thought i'd say that)!

Please don't take this the wrong way, because it's just how i am, but personally i can't even begin to use an application with icons (both the main application icon, and the toolbar etc icons) that IMHO (i.e. a personal preference) look less pretty than what i would expect from a modern OS X application.
I'm sure some of you think the icons look awesome though. :)
Just saying!

Not digging the multiple windows interface. That was one of the things that was so nice about smultron back in the days, when single-window applications was something unheard of. I'm not going back.
Well, while i'm at it, i never liked the in-application (toolbar, preference, etc) icons either. The main application icon is awesome though!
Still, i wish smultron all the best! :)

Wallet is awesome! In fact, i just used the "Autofill With Wallet" function of the safari extension to login to macupdate just now, on my new iMac running lion. I'm quite impressed of how often it seems to "just work" actually. In my experience, it also offers to save the login information most (if not all) of the time, when a website haven't yet been added to wallets database.
The developer just released an update to support Lion, which shows Wallet is still in active development. In fact, it's updated quite regularly it would seem. Not so often it's irritating, but often enough for bugs to be ironed out, and to show it's still in business :)
I have it synched to my iPhone, also running wallet, which has saved me a couple of times, when i needed access to a few sites that are password protected, on the go.
Wallet has a perfectly passable application icon, and the UI in general is quite well put together IMHO. Good work mr developer :) Looks is important, at least to me!
Last, but not least, this is one of the very few applications that offer a trial/demo of the application, before buying it from the MAS. Very nice IMHO! I wish more developers did that.
Perhaps the developer doesn't answer support emails, i wouldn't really know, because i haven't yet had the pleasure of sending him/her/them a support request. So i can't help you there, i'm afraid!
In short, if you can be without firefox integration, and looking for something cheaper than 1password, wallet is certainly worth a try IMHO.

Great looking clamxav icon alternative, if you find the clamxav icon rather ugly (as i do):

Need more work. Personally, i bought Fluid instead, and created a SSB (site specific browser) app to do what all these face* apps do, but better IMHO...

Wow! This is the best thing since sliced bread :)
No, but seriously, i was searching for a facebook notification/browser app. Most of them live in the menubar, and run some crappy version of the touch UI of facebook, with varying degrees of sucess. Then i read about fluid, and userscripts. Userscripts in fluid is apparently only for licenced users unless i'm mistaken, but still, facebook badges is supported right-out-of-the box with the few scripts that are included by default. So for my uses, it's absolutely perfect.

Love the function, hate the fake "native cocoa" UI elements. These guys should do a proper OSX port of the GUI as far as I am concerned. Even the fake rounded window corners fail if you bring anything else than the desktop window behind the main window. Try it, you'll see.
Still, it works flawlessly. I wish you could throttle the upload bandwidth manually though, because spotify relies on p2p (bittorrent) tech in the desktop app (not the mobile one).
One thing that would be nice would be a recommendation system (such as has), and more radio stations/features. I want to discover music as much as listen to it.

Allright, that's not spotify specific (the rounded corners glitch). It's kinda hard to see unless under the right (or unfortunate) circumstances, but i've seen that with other apps now as well.
I have however noticed another "bug" - spotify is in my login items, set to start hidden, but it doesn't.

Now we're just waiting for an update so that one may resize and move (later versions of) certain iLife/iWork apps around...
