Chrome is fast, stable, intuative and impeccably maintained. Version 30 more so than ever; maintaining and supporting a web browser is like maintaining a Bonzai tree and Google's developers are Zen masters.

If one needs a reliable web browser, look no further. It is customizable and supports all sorts of apps and add ons if that is something that piques one's interest.

All in all, Google didn't make this one of the most popular browsers in the world by forcing anyone to use it - rather they simply made the best browser in the world and oddly enough people started to seek it out.

Stable, powerful, feature complete and worth every dollar if you are using it to make money. Somewhat steep learning curve, but frankly amazing how fast it runs on older Macs. It's very light-weight.

I've been using XPress since version 4. Darn good stuff.

This version of iTunes, IMO doesn't deserve quite this low a score, but in light of it being so overrated I felt compelled.

This is a 3 star music player.

Which it has been since iTunes 4. It may be many things to many people but for me it is a music/podcast player.

I review it as such, since all other functions are either superfluous to me or just annoying.

I'd recommend this as a music player, but of course if you have an iOS product or iPod, well who cares what is recommended - this is what you have to use.

So its sole remaining competitive function is a music/podcast player. Why just 3 stars? It doesn't support all common formats, not lossless or WMA or FLAC etc.

It is distracting to use with all the features that have nothing to do with playing music/podcasts. Perhaps this is the "best" way for Apple to make the program, but it just doesn't help it. It's annoying, distracting.

Customizability is low, not nil, but low. Some plugins can be added, but it's neither made easy nor actively encouraged. Customizability of the app itself is practically zero.

The good: it plays music files and uses surprisingly little CPU.

It is also remarkably stable. Don't recall a crash in years.

Of course I give it only half a star in the ratings because of so many undeserved 5 star ratings, given just because ...

Best and most reliable FTP player out there, the price is right (I donated 10 dollars) and I can't recommend it enough.

If you need FTP/SFTP that just works, Cyberduck is for you.

MacApp-store only, means it's basically unusable for me since I don't use the MAS. The earlier versions worked fine, it does what it does - just get an older version.

Don't encourage the developer by buying this on MAS and give Apple 30% and your personal info for free.

QXP 9.1 continues to add some basic features to the app, but for document layout/publishing nothing beats QuarkXPress - it's lightweight, it's fast, stable, reliable, compatible and versatile.

For anyone making money of his/her work, the price is well worth it.

This version is no exception. There is a learning curve, so this is not a useful app for amateurs who want to "be cool" and make their wedding invitations on a professional app.

Final thought; it stands on its own merits and feels quite a lot less bloated than the competition. I love Adobe, but they just don't make the best document layout app.
