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.


Monolingual ( - another utility that helps you save hard drive space by removing unused localization resources(see also delocalizer). Ad bonus, this one can remove sources from the input menu and also unused architectures from the application bundles. The last one sounds interesting - if you're currently running on an Intel chip you probably won't be going back to PowerPC G3. Careful, though, removing app architectures can be a dangerous thing and may corrupt your operating system. Make sure you know what you're doing.
