Spotlight is great, but sometimes you need something more specialized. EasyFind finds files and folders by name or content using advanced Boolean operators similar to DEVONthink and DEVONagent, wildcards, and phrases. It does not require indexing, is fast, and uses very little memory. Of course EasyFind doesn't just give you the files, it also shows previews and gives you many other options to work with them. And it's free. Life can be so good.

Icon Eyeballs 3.3

Eyeballs is a fun Mac OS X application that gives you a set of eyeballs in your menu bar or on your desktop. The eyes watch the cursor move around as you work. They get sleepy depending on how busy you're keeping the cursor, and they blink periodically. They are extremely configurable, in terms of the colors they use, their eyelid and pupil style, how sleepy they are, and a bunch of other things (see the configuration panel snapshot below). If those configuration options aren't enough, custom skins are also supported.

Icon Find Any File 1.9.2

Find Any File is a program for Mac OS X that lets you search for files on your disks.
Contrary to Spotlight, it does not use a database but instead uses the file system driver's fast search operations, where available. This lets you search for file properties such as name, dates, size, etc., but not for file content (use Spotlight or EasyFind for that).
Find Any File can find files that Spotlight doesn't, e.g. those inside bundles and packages and in inside folders that are usually excluded from Spotlight search.
Finally, it is quite fast. A search only takes a few seconds on an internal hard disk or SSD. Try for yourself!

Icon FinderPop 2.5.7

Ensure you use the Apple unzipper to unzip the downloaded FinderPop zip file. Then, if the System Preferences application is running, please quit it. Strange things can happen otherwise. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon you downloaded. System Preferences will open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. If you are using 10.7 or later, or are using FileVault, you should choose 'All Users'. Otherwise you can choose either option, and the System will install the FinderPop Preference Pane. FinderPop may ask you for the admin password in order to set certain permissions on some FinderPop files. This is only done once at installation time. If you had an older version of FinderPop already installed, you will have to logout to begin using the new version.

After installation, open the FinderPop Preferences Pane. Click on the "Items" tab, then on the "Show FinderPop Items" button. You'll be switched to the Finder with a folder called "FinderPop Items" showing. Add aliases to your favourite apps/folders/disks/documents to this "FinderPop Items" folder. Next time you control-click, the items you added will be part of your contextual menu!

Additionally, click a blank portion of the menubar anytime to have instant access to these items and more. While browsing FinderPop menus, pressing Command-Option will display a "Get Info" help tag, pressing Cmd-Opt-Control will allow you to move the selected item to the trash, and pressing Command while selecting an item will reveal that item in the Finder. Also, pressing 'i' will immediately show the Finder Info window for the item, 'r' will immediately reveal the item, 'q' will QuickLook it (Leopard only), 'g' will "grab" or "pick up" the item and allow you to drag it around (as with all Mac drags, dragging to the menubar and letting go aborts the drag.) Pressing Tab will bring up a "FinderPop Info" window on the item.

Other features: Command-control-click a folder to get a Contents popup menu. Shift-click an unused portion of the menubar to see a Desktop menu with your mounted disks and items on your desktop. Command-click an unused portion of the menubar to see a Processes menu. If Control is down as well, background-only processes will also be shown in the Processes menu. Press Command-Option-Control to kill a process.

Icon FolderBrander 2.4

Mac OS X lets you keep folders in the Dock. This makes accessing frequently used folders quick and easy.
The problem is that without customized folder icons, you cannot tell the folders apart.
In many cases, having a short text label over an icon makes it much easier to tell what's in the folder. However, creating such an icon using a graphic app and an icon app can be difficult and time-consuming.
The Solution
FolderBrander lets you quickly and easily alter the look of your folders.
When you are satisfied with how your new icon look, simply click the Apply button and you're done!

Icon Magnet 2.1

Every time you move a content from one app to the other, compare data side by side or multitask in any other way, you need all the windows arranged accordingly. Magnet makes this process clean and simple.
In one drag to the edge, you size a window into half of your screen. And by dragging windows to the corners, you snap them into quarters. Slide them to the bottom edge of your display to create thirds. Taking advantage of such arrangements eliminates app switching and greatly enhances workspace efficiency.
Magnet supports keyboard shortcuts as well, for every command it has to offer. There is that little icon sitting in the Menu Bar where you can find a predefined set or create yours.

Icon NotLight 1.1

A simple Spotlight front-end substitute. I wrote this because I got sick and tired of Tiger's lousy Spotlight interface. (Apple now provides a much better Spotlight interface, especially if you search from a Finder window.) So I wrote this substitute, in order to access the real Spotlight. You can do any kind of Spotlight search; eight search keys are built in, and you can add more, and you can even view and edit a search as text if you like. You can use wildcards or not, specify word-based, case-insensitive, and diacritic-insensitive searches, and construct complex searches with AND, OR, and NOT. A Date Assistant translates dates into Spotlight’s query language for you. Results are a simple list of filenames and paths.

Icon TinkerTool 6.21

TinkerTool is an application that gives you access to additional preference settings Apple has built into Mac OS X. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of the applications delivered with the system.
The tool makes sure that preference changes can only affect the current user. You don't need administrative privileges to use the tool. With this design, it is no problem to use TinkerTool in professional networks where users have restricted permissions. The program will never change any component of the operating system, so the integrity of your system is not put at risk, and there will be no negative effect on system updates.
All preference settings changed by TinkerTool can be reset to Apple's defaults, or to the state that existed before using the tool. No dangerous background processes are used for TinkerTool's operation.
Because TinkerTool only gives you access to features already built into Mac OS X, its feature set varies greatly between different operating system versions.

Wraparound is an application primarily intended for users with large and/or multiple screens, which allows the mouse cursor to "wrap" around the screens. Rather than spending time and energy moving the cursor across the screen, from one side to the other, simply drag it off one edge and it immediately appears on the other side.
Wraparound can handle even the most abnormal of screen layout configurations, and even allow windows and other objects to be dragged though screen edges. And if you're worried about not being able to hit your menu bar or dock without the edge to stop the cursor, you can always turn off horizontal or vertical screen wrapping to suit your preferences. It also preserves screensavers and Expose functionality with variable sized non-wrapping areas at the corners.
Compatibility Notes:
Wraparound does not work while the Universal Access "Zoom" feature is invoked.
Wraparound may exhibit unexpected behavior when using Universal Access "Mouse Keys", particularly with vertically stacked screens.
