ET OSX is a list of useful tools for the MacOS X, most of which live in the Applications folder on my startup drive. It started as a 'what's on my Mac' page on my personal site but quickly evolved into a blog of its own. I'm trying to focus most on of the tiny but useful utilities that sometimes save you lots of trouble and effort, and to omit for the most part the list of big guns, that one normally uses on a daily basis. The list serves two purposes, lets me easily answer 'how do I do this on the Mac' questions asked by other users, and helps me remember answers to the same questions myself.

CrossOver Mac

CrossOver Mac ( - this is CodeWeaver's Windows-compatibility-for-the-Mac product, it lets you run Windows applications without running windows or requiring a Windows license. It is the perfect solution if you just need to test that web page with IE6. The catch - only helps you run win98 compatible software. Based on the Wine project. $59.95 commercial license, trial available.
