Attention Mac Users – I Need Your Help

Yesterday, I finally “retired” my five-and-a-half-year-old Dell laptop and bought an Apple iMac to replace it.

So far, I love it. Feels light years beyond my old PC set-up.

But right now I’m focused on two important things:

  1. Transferring important files over to the new iMac.
  2. And… Learning how to most efficiently use my iMac.

With that in mind, I’d like to solicit your help.

Please leave a comment sharing your #1 tip, tool, or shortcut for your Mac computer.

  • It could be a little-known function for doing something cool.
  • It could be a Mac software program that you just can’t live without.
  • Or it could be any other tip or resource you feel I (and other Mac converts) should know about.

I’m particularly interested in any advice you have in how best to use a Mac in a home-based business.

  • What’s the best HTML editor for a Mac?
  • What’s the best text editor? (I used Textpad on my PC.)
  • What’s the best screen capture video software?
  • What’s the best FTP program?
  • What’s the best way to do screen captures?
  • Do you see how many questions I have? :-)

Not only will I read every comment, I’ll also take all the best tips and publish them next week in a brand new blog post, with attribution.

So get to it! Share your best Mac advice by leaving a comment below.

UPDATE: I’ve finally tabulated all the results and published them here… Best Mac Tips, Software & Shortcuts for Internet Marketers.
