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.


Smultron ( - is a lightweight, Cocoa-based text editor that is currently on top of my list. I've alway been a great fan of quick text editors that serve me to compose a document, which later on I can mark-up in another application if I need to do so. Smultron can be very sophisticated, if you need it to. It supports syntax coloring, line/column numbers, split-window editing and can present a whole project (as in a bunch of files) in the same window. Requieres Tiger. It is an opensource project, and the authors accept PayPal donations through SourceForge.
