^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 :)

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/)

My site's were originally made on windows in notepad. They're now maintained using TextEdit on Mac OS.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
