"Best" apps for Mac list
A Windows expert who switched to a Mac in 2005 has updated his list of "the best applications" for Mac. Dubbed the A-List of Mac Software, Computerworld's Scot Finnie recently evaluated browsing options, screen capture applications, antivirus software, HTML editors, and corporate as well as personal email clients. Applications that made the latest A-List include Safari as the current top browser, SnapNDrag representing screenshot utilities, VirusBarrier X4 for antivirus software, Taco HTML to fill the gap until a better HTML editor surfaces, Lotus Notes 7.0.2 for corporate email needs, and Eudora for personal email management. Software currently under consideration to make the A-List includes Quicksilver, Path Finder, Adium, Apple Mail, NetNewsWire, OmniWeb, Camino, Shiira, Saft, Pagespinner, and Norton AntiVirus 10.0 for Mac.
