Adium for instant messaging, it also has a nice menu icon. If you used Pidjin on Windows, this is the OS X alternative.


Weather Bug to see temperature on menubar, also direct link to full whether info.


Transmit (commercial) or Cyberduck (free/Donationware) for FTP. Version 4 of Cyberduck is even available for Windows.

    For FTP I do prefer FileZilla because it is free and cross-platform. – sorin Mar 9 '11 at 15:11
