All new Macs come with great bundled software. Between the iLife suite, Safari , iTunes , and TextEdit, plus the ability to access and use cloud applications for free, almost all of the most basic modern computing needs get met for most users. That said, having used four different Macs over the past seven years, there are several applications that don't come with OS X that I find myself immediately loading onto a new Mac. Most of these are big-name apps that you've probably already heard of, but it's still pretty amazing how much extra functionality you can eke out of a Mac with only ten additional programs, and all of them (save the last one) are free.

Mac OS X Leopard only: Free, open source application Secrets rolls every hidden feature of Leopard into an easy-to-use preference pane in your System Preferences . Developed by the author of the much-beloved Quicksilver, you can browse Secrets by application to see what tweaks are available for the apps you have installed. There's a ton to look into with Secrets, but the one secret that blew my mind off the bat was the "Arrows link to library instead of store" tweak in iTunes, which may be the most useful thing I've ever done to iTunes (and I've covered the best iTunes add-ons ). Secrets is free, Mac OS X only. If you give it a try, share your favorite Secrets in the comments. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Sous Windows, depuis Windows 95 (certains se souviennent peut-être de la campagne de lancement de cette version "révolutionnaire" du système de Microsoft), il existe un menu "Démarrer" (celui qui permet… d'arrêter le système).
Mac OS X only: Free application Dock Dodger removes any running application from your Dock, decluttering your Dock for apps that you want to keep there and ditching the rest.

The app's great, but it has a useless Dock icon.
