Snow Transformation Pack makes your Windows 7 PC look like it's running OS X

I'm pretty happy with the way Windows 7 looks out of the box. The vast majority of our readers seem to like the new look, too -- especially the fact that it's highly customizable. But suppose you want to do more than play with sliders to adjust the hue and opacity? Suppose you want to drape a Mac's gray-and-purple cloak over your desktop? Take a look at Snow Transformation Pack. It's one of...

Customize your Snow Leopard dock with Dock Library

When Apple introduced the new shelf-like dock in OS 10.5 Leopard, users were up in arms over how ugly it was, with some even switching their docks to the side of the screen to avoid seeing it. If you hate the shelf, or just wish you could make it look better, you should give Dock Library a try. It lets you replace your dock with a custom design, and works in both Leopard and Snow Leopard. Sites...

Add Leopard-style folder stacks to Windows

I'm not a Mac user, but OSX has a lot of nice features - several of which have been translated into Windows shell enhancements. I've been using the Stacks docklet in RocketDock for quite a while. It's a very handy way to navigate frequently accessed folders. If you're not a fan of dock applications, but you'd still like to add stacks to your taskbar, just download StandaloneStack. It's a small...

OS X 10.5.3 update available now

The latest point update for Mac OS X Leopard has just been released. If you thought OS X 10.5.2 was big, hold onto your socks because 10.5.3 is even bigger. The combo update for versions of Leopard prior to 10.5.2 is 536 megabytes and the standard update for users of 10.5.2 is a still staggering 420 megabytes. Still, with big sizes come BIG changes, fixes and features. Apple has the full list, but...

Suspicious Package: Preview contents of installer package via Quick Look

Suspicious Package 1.1 is a clever little plugin for Leopard's Quick Look feature that enables you to preview the contents of an installer package without having to launch the installer itself. The plugin is easy to install, and no configuration is necessary.

Man Viewer: view all installed man pages on Leopard

Man Viewer is a small application that does a simple job: it lets you view/export all of the man pages installed in Mac OS 10.5 Leopard. Man (short for manual) pages are Unix documents that explain how to use Unix commands. The general command usage to display a man page in Unix is: man <command> as in man cp (to show how to use the copy command). Man Viewer automatically finds your man...

SyncMate gets an update

Back in November, we posted about SyncMate, a freeware (for now) alternative for syncing Windows Mobile 5 and 6 devices with a Mac, especially Macs running OS X 10.5 Leopard. Well, the program looked promising, but proved to be buggy and difficult to adequately use. However, SyncMate has continued to evolve over the last couple of months and Eltima software recently released a new release...

Bezel HUD and Showcase: seamless Quicksilver interfaces for Leopard

We've written before about Quicksilver, the indispensable launcher app that lets you quickly get to any file on your Mac with just a few keystrokes. Quicksilver is a nice-looking piece of software, but the default interface fits a lot better with the overall look of Tiger than it does with Leopard. Fortunately, German designer Julius Eckert has created some impressive new skins that are...

SuperDuper backup utility updated for Leopard

SuperDuper!, the long loved Mac backup utility, has finally been updated for Mac OS X Leopard. You might be wondering how SuperDuper! finds a niche even after Apple's own backup utility, Time Machine, has been integrated into every Mac with Leopard installed. The developers of SuperDuper! think of their relationship to Time Machine as complementary rather than competitive. Here's why: SuperDuper!...

LeopardMOD - tweak Leopard settings sans command line

LeopardMOD 2.3 (for Mac 10.5 only) provides an easy way to change some Leopard interface options without having to use the (gasp!) command terminal. The tool utilizes the tabbed look found in some Mac system pref panes, with tabs for Finder, Dock, Dashboard, Safari, and Menu Bar. LeopardMOD lets you change the menu bar to a solid color (white or grey) instead of the Leopard default of transparent....

Fluid: Give any webapp a home on your Mac OS X desktop

Do you have Gmail perma-tabbed in your browser window? Are you a Google Docs devotee? Is Facebook bookmarked as your home page?

Fluid, a beta download for Mac OS X Leopard, creates Site Specific Browsers that run as independent...

Skype 2.7 beta for Mac released: Now with Leopard support

Skype has released a new build of Skype 2.7 beta for Mac. Probably the most important feature in the latest release is support for OS X 10.5 Leopard. But it looks like the Skype team is also continuing its march toward feature parity across the Mac, Linux, and PC versions of the popular internet telephony software. A few months ago Skype launched high-res video support for video chat using the...
