As a browser, I mostly use Opera, and am very satisfied with it, but I would not put any browser in a top 3 program list, as browsers are ubiquitous nowadays. So here is my top 3:



1. Robomaker by Openkapow (generate RSS feeds by stripping html from web pages)


2. RSSBandit (to read those RSS feeds).  One of my favourites, although there is still room for improvement.


3. NetTransport,  excellent and robust file/stream download manager.


This top3 has been quite stable for me at least for the past 6-12 months.

OK, I am going to take a stab at continuing my ever-lasting list of programs here, i have 3 pages now...this wont be difficult...not at all tongue

As soon as I get the list done (about 30 mins or so) I will post a poll on the most popular programs. Looks like Firefox, DOpus and FARR are in the top couple (if I remember correctly).

Added poll based on top 9 programs, I am suprised at the tie!
Vote away and lets see what one wins (FARR has 14 users for the top 3, 5 more then DOpus!)

What does Celtx have over Final Draft and Movie Magic?  This is the first time I've ever heard of it, tho I keep my eye open for such things.  I'm very curious -- as a writer, too

OK, by popular demand: Chapter by Chapter -- or CbC, for short!

CbC essentially manages a book manuscript, which is kept in separate chapter files.  This add in, which works as a small separate program, sits on top of Microsoft Word.

Once CbC is open, one enters a new chapter title, which opens up a blank page in Word, where one writes or imports a chapter, or at least the beginnings.  Then start another chapter, and so on.  Soon CbC displays in its window a list of all your chapters, all stored in sepapate Word files, including word count for each one.  One can drag and drop each chapter into a different order, rearranging one's book.  And if one needs to see the entire book in one file, a click of the mouse brings them all together in a single file, where one can do editing, paginating, change format to suit a particular publisher.

I'm working on a huge book project.  I've tried so many different programs to manage the project -- and I always return to CbC.  And it's free.

More information available at:

Developer Sebastien Berthet provides some useful additional information at this website.

Armando, thanks for nudging me to post this...

Hey!!! thanks so much, Tom.  Kiss
It's already late here, but I'll have a look at CbC right away. Sounds like a greeeaaaat add-in.
It could actually be part of the solution to one of my big summer problem -- see the thread Working with (display+format+restructure) big amount of data (text+graphics)?

Lots of what I use was already listed by others --- so in the hopes of getting some of the less well known stuff listed.

FlashDesktops (http://www.flashdesktops.com/) -- makes X-Windows switching feel slow when I am on Unix, the best desktop switching tool I have come into contact with on ANY Platform.

Hoekey (http://www.bcheck.net/apps/hoe.htm) -- makes keybindings to do ANYTHING.  From hitting the next button in iTunes, to vertically maximizing a window, to shutting down windows.  Kinda complex to learn, but shockingly powerful.

True Launch Bar (http://www.truelaunchbar.com/) -- quick launch bar -- on crack and roids.  It is a system monitor (cpu / mem / volume control / wireless signal), random place to put stuff (weather applet, clock applet) / super-launch bar. 

... I felt really limited only getting to choose three... so I am cheating (vim rules!  http://vim.sf.net)

Its just the top 5 (ideally) most popular. It's more of a notification then a poll, but thats how its setup.

Well... maybe not (for my usage anyway). I've already organized my PhD dissertation and note that CbC is much better suited to starting a project from scratch.

Well, truth be told, aside from FF, I use Photoshop, CoolEdit Pro, and Directory Opus on one or another machine. Oh yeah, Office 2003...

Okay, I keep all my $ware disks in a box under my bed labeled "Playboys and porn"! Fact is, I use dozens of freewares daily; the heavy duty stuff is for production work. "It isn't easy being green."
I prefer to use freeware, but there are some things that just work more efficiently with commercial software.

I wish the topic were "Top 3 programs you use Plus your Email client & Browser..."
I agree.  My top three programs are

1) Clipmate 7 http://www.thornsoft.com/ (if I had to pick just one program, this would be it)
2) Directory Opus 9  http://www.gpsoft.com.au/  (an amazing replacement for Windows Explorer)
3) A tie between Active Words  http://www.activewords.com/ (a macro program on steroids) and Powermarks http://www.kaylon.com/power.html (the best bookmark manager I know)

I also LOVE my email program, Mulberry http://www.mulberrymail.com/ (the best IMAP client I know, and I've tried lots).  If I weren't separating out email clients, I'd put Mulberry up there as my #3 pick.
