Ever since the App Store has existed, nothing has improved and it's a joke of a iPad ported app. It was fine the way it was before for Mac users, you went to developer's sites or sites like MacUpdate and you got your app and learned about new ones. I hate the digital crap also, sometimes I do want a CD man.

My default browser since day one. Used it through good old version 3, my unfavorite version 4, and now into version 5. Never fails to randomly crash every few months. Also good to keep it's cache cleaning and delete certain preference files on occasion to keep it at it's fastest, although it has been getting better and better. Not perfect like anything else. Apple is doing a good job all around. I can't trust any other browser on my Mac to be my default, alternatives yes, but all around It's been fast, reliable and built well into Mac. Why Apple didn't make Safari way back in the OS X public beta, I don't know, but it's here now and has been long enough, and I like it either way.

I started with FireFox on Windows, several years ago, I think just before version 2 came out. When I switched to Mac, I have become more and more disappointed. It doesn't pass the acid test for one, and on my Mac in benchmarks inferior to Safari, Chrome, Opera and others! FireFox on Mac also feels too much like a port, it's only better than Opera, which is improving it seems while FireFox is declining. What has happened to it more recently is more upsetting, but there is no way that this is better for a Mac user that doesn't really use any extensions. I'm sorry that FireFox is going this path, I loved it up to version 3. Since then, not totally on Windows or even Linux although it's been getting fishy all around, I haven't felt for this good old browser. But it's not useless, certainly have come in handy just a couple of times. But be careful choosing it as your default browser now, I'll always keep my eye on it though.

VLC is helpful, free, solid and a must have for me. It plays that foreign format or two that QuickTime can quite handle on rare occasion. It's perfect for when you want to play video on a second monitor so long as you set it up before hand, so you don't have to go through the Windows-typical slam of the space bar and watch the controls come back up and the OCD stuff make it look unprofessional just when you want to play a stupid video (you can set it up that way). It also does well with system resources and it's nice and light too.

I am also very satisfied the developers have been polishing the interface and keeping it looking less and less like a port. Too many Mac apps have that port-feeling or reminiscence. Thanks!

A solid Instant Messenger. Every new Mac user should be aware of this good old IM client. Knew about it before I switched to Mac in July 2009. Although I should point out there is something here or there that you feel might need to be addd or improved, and in all honestly not that I don't appreciate it or it's not updated, I just feel myself wanting to click to check for updates menu on occasion to see if it gets polished a little, or something new comes.

Never seems to fail me. I love the fact that you can not only tweak, but go into the system and user panes and clean whatever you want out on the fly.

A Mac must have and glad I found it back when I installed Snow Leopard.

Have been using this tool since Leopard in 2009.

It has always been good. I keep it up to date the best I can. The recent versions close all apps when you start the tool. I'm pretty sure several versions ago this wasn't the case or at least not set by default. Not much changes, it's great to do system maintenance of the fly. Runs through all your basic scripts and never leaves any problems like various other tools can, even in the smallest way.

(NOTE: I apologize for my blatant misunderstanding a year ago. )

Unlike YASU, This program has a free license, which automatically wins my respect. I am also happy to say this is a well built application and it works very well!

I got this app looking on Apple's site, but since I currently use this version, I thought I'd write a review. I got it and was curious on how well it was. I tired it, and it worked great, no problems and it did as it said it would. I recommend yasu over iTool if you're a bit suspicious, but otherwise it's a nice tool and works fine for me.
