Big Mac

I’ve just got a mac so thought I’d list the free software I use as and when I find it.

The list below are all working well so far. I’ll edit this post if I have noteworthy issues or find replacements or new software.

Adium – Chat client. MSN, Google Talk, Facebook chat, AIM, ICQ even Myspace Chat. (Update: Facebook chat worked for a while but doesn’t believe that I’m me any more so keeps asking my date of birth and password and doesn’t log me in even when I give it. Also crashes every now and again for no obvious reason. Still, it’s a very good multi-protocol messenger.Update: Facebook chat now works on Jabber so it now works perfectly!)

TextWrangler – Fairly basic code-highlighting text editor. (Update: Good software but I’ve got Dreamweaver now, so it’s redundant.)

MAMP – Apache, MySQL and PHP in one ridiculously easy installation.

ClassicFTP – Simple FTP file transfer program.

Colloquy – IRC. Simple but works well. Some say its buggy but I haven’t had any problems.

Virtual Box – Virtual machines. Good stuff.
