I tested different programs like Things (nice and clean interface) and The Hit List (superb input methods) to see which one would fit my personal task organizing needs. Neither did.

When I tried OmniFocus its interface looked quite complex and seemed to lack some polish at first, but after some time I realized how mighty and well-thought-out it this program is.
I don't use the GTD methodology but a different approach. Nevertheless OmniFocus is perfectly able to handle it (- unlike Things and THL).
IMHO its flexibility is the reason why it's the superior task organizing tool for Mac: I can group tasks into different folders (in my case these are my different "roles" in life) and create endlessly nested subtasks (breaking down big tasks into manageable pieces). Contexts allow to further refine the task structure. Different "views" can be configured, saved and reused in order to quickly gain the perfect overview in different situations.
The syncing with the iPhone App works flawlessly, smoothly and reliably.
For me this app is almost perfect and really helps me to keep up with a bunch of different tasks and duties using my own methods.

The only thing I'm still missing is the possibility to create subtasks within subtasks using the iPhone app. It can show and edit those nested subtasks, but I have to create the nested structure on the desktop app. But that's rather a concern with the iPhone app than with the desktop app.

All in all I love this program. Yes, it is relatively expensive but its flexibility makes up for it. It really helped me to increase my productivity.

I'm using Progressive Downloader since version 0.3.x (when it was still called "Progressive Speed Downloader") and I'm very pleased with it. The problem concerning the cpu usage obviously has been solved, so I've got nothing to complain about:
It's fast as hell (in my own tests it outperformed Speed Download easily), reliable (finally!) and free.

Big thanks to the developers! :)

I have to admit that I am barely using file sharing services so I didn't take them into account for my review.
I rather tend to use BitTorrent for general use and Dropbox for personal use.
