There are still some slight compatibility issues with Lion (scrollbars always visible, no true fullscreen support, both of which are addressed in developer builds), but nothing major. Chrome's been my preferred browser since I switched from Firefox a little over a year ago, and I've yet to anything that matches it in speed, stability, and memory usage. The data-mining claims are concerning, but Google haven't done anything to violate my trust, and until they do, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and continue to use their products. The frequent updates are a non-issue for me, as I have auto-update turned on, and I've never even noticed them going on behind the scenes. If anything, I like that features are implemented as soon as they're stable, rather than held back until the next big number release.

So glad to have my favorite music player back. The new UI is beautiful, and fits in with Lion very nicely.

A solid unarchiver, but you're basically paying for eye candy. There are plenty of other utilities that do the same thing for free; the only difference is that Archiver has a better UI. Obviously that's worth something, but $20 seems pretty steep to me.

Maybe the best music player I've ever used. There are plenty of applications out there to manage your music library for you and edit id3 tags, and I really appreciate that Vox takes a different, simplified approach. All I want is something that can play whatever I throw at it, and look pretty while doing it, and Vox absolutely fits the bill. It has a few other well-implemented features (menu bar controls and the media info tab are both appreciated), but I think the main draw for most is it's simplicity. It's lightweight, does exactly what you need of it, and nothing more.

I've tried a few similar applications, and this is my favorite so far. The menubar display is clean, simple, and easily customizable, and the drop-down menu provides a lot of information without having to dig through submenus. My only complaints are that the UI isn't as attractive as it could be (of course, that's just a matter of preference), the drop-down menu can seem a bit cluttered (it would be nice to have the option to choose how much info it displays), and a few customization options I'd like to see are missing, such as the ability to choose where the weather data comes from, display the temperature only, without an icon, and choose smaller refresh increments. Those are mostly minor complaints though, and overall, Weather Vane is an excellent application.
