There are plenty. Checkout www.versiontracker.com or www.macupdate.com for software. You could also use Download.com, but I prefer Version Tracker.
^What reg said. Version Tracker and Mac Update are your friends.
But to list some of the things I use..
http://www.cosmos.ne.jp/~kaz6120/ - ported apps, such as Wget and a cocoa front end.
http://xchataqua.sourceforge.net/ - IRC client based on X-Chat
http://www.rbrowser.com/RBrowserLite/ - FTP Client
http://gottsilla.net/ - P2P Client uses the KaZaAaAaAaA network
http://videolan.org/ - The daddy-o of video playing
http://www.ittpoi.com/ - lots of small apps, some aren't free.
http://www.projectomega.org/subcat.php?lg=en&php=products_firestarter - CD Burner that supports .bin/.cue \o/
It's hard to just list a load of apps, if you tell us what function you're after (ie: FTP, Media Player...etc) then we can give you some suggestions

I want to find a cool theme app .Can u help me?
Others just llike the most popular web browser,media player?Thanks !
Web browsers - Safari is the native web browser on OS X, and it uses the KHTML rendering engine. You can also use the Mac version of Firefox if you like.
Some strange people like OmniWeb, (http://www.omnigroup.com/applications/omniweb/) I see no point when Apple's native browser does an excellent job and (of course) for free.
As for Media, Mac OSX comes with iTunes (and is available for OS9, to my knowledge) which plays music, some formats aren't natively supported, however can be added via the relevant libraries.
For video media, there's QuickTime which can play all your video's including DivX etc with the right codecs. For media that QuickTime can't play there's VLC which I mentioned in my last post, everyone that I know uses it. Also MPlayer is a nice VLC alternative (http://mplayerosx.sourceforge.net/)
And how to change the themes?
I use themechanger to change mine (http://themechanger.sourceforge.net/)
There is also ShapeShifter (http://www.unsanity.com/panther.php) but it's not free.
Themes are available from:
Thanks Speedy_B,u always help me to slove my problems.Can u tell me how do u design your website?Which apps are needed?Do u just make them on your mac os x 10.3?Thanks again!
My site's were originally made on windows in notepad. They're now maintained using TextEdit on Mac OS.
Thanks!SpeedY_B.It works for me!Could u give me a good download program?
I just use Safari's download manager. It supports resuming etc, so there's no need for an external application.
I do use wget from time to time, which is a command line tool, available from here: http://www.cosmos.ne.jp/~kaz6120/

You don't need a virus scan tool.
