The Unarchiver Do you want to browse the contents of archives, rather than just extracting them? Or do you want to support development on The Unarchiver? Buy The Archive Browser! The Unarchiver is a much more capable replacement for "Archive", the built-in archive unpacker program on Mac OS X. It is very simple to use and install - simply copy it into your Applications folder or whereever you prefer, and then set archive filetypes to open using it. Supported file formats include Zip, Tar-GZip, Tar-BZip2, RAR, 7-zip, LhA, StuffIt and many other old and obscure formats. It now has a new homepage:

Coda - One-Window Web Development for Mac OS X Good question. Coda is everything you need to hand-code a website, in one beautiful app. While the pitch is simple, building Coda was anything but. How do you elegantly wrap everything together? More than anything else, Coda is a text editor. But an incredible text editor is just a nice typewriter if you can’t easily handle all of your files — from anywhere. Then you’ll want to see what your code looks like. Believe it or not, we’ve just scratched the surface. Finally, hiding behind the Plus button in the tab bar is a built-in Terminal and MySQL editor, two amazingly powerful Tab Tools. And it’s all wrapped up in our Sites, which get you started quickly. Coda is a very good app.

Debugging a hang on OS X - MDC If you find a hang in an application, it is very useful for the developer to know where in the code this hang happens, especially if he or she can't reproduce it. Below are steps you can use to attach so-called "Samples" to bug reports. Creating the sample on Mac OS X 10.5 When the application is still hung, open up Spin (it’s in your <tt>/Developer/Applications/Performance Tools/</tt> folder; if it is missing, install the latest Computer Hardware Understanding Development (CHUD) Tools from Apple). Creating the sample on Mac OS X 10.4 When the application is still hung, open up (it’s in your <tt>/Developer/Applications/Performance Tools/</tt> folder; if it is missing, install the latest Computer Hardware Understanding Development (CHUD) Tools from Apple.). The final data will show where the application spent all its time when it was hung, and hopefully your bug will be easier to fix now! See also Debugging on Mac OS X
