iCab is a feature-packed browser that does just about everything that Netscape Communicator and MSIE do (except for email and Usenet news), while offering a legion of features that aren't supported by many other browsers, such as:
iCab 4 was completely rewritten and is now based on Cocoa instead of Carbon. It is much faster than iCab 3, has a polished user interface, and includes some new features. iCab 4 is available as Universal Binary for all PowerPC and Intel Macs running Mac OS X 10.3.9 or newer.
Version 4.8a makes the following additional changes:
iCab 3.0.5 is only recommended if you're still using an older version of Mac OS X (older than 10.3.9) or if your still using the "Classic" Mac OS. When using a Mac with G4, G5 or Intel processor and Mac OS X 10.3.x or newer, the Universal Binary version should be used instead of the PowerPC version.
(Version 3.0 beta) "Lovely browser that is years ahead of every other Mac browser when it comes to config options and functionality. Also iCab is a lot more attractive these days in how it displays pages, and faster too! I also love the little RSS button that you can click on in the latest versions to choose from the page's RSS feeds and add them to your favourite RSS reader. iCab's come a long way in terms of speed, stability (I hardly ever experience crashes with the latest beta) and page rendering since version 2, and is now a serious competitor to Safari, Firefox and Camino IMHO."

(Version 4.1.1) "iCab 4.1.1 uses the same webkit as Safari, and updates more frequently, if you use the fully functional betas. It compares with Safari on every level, speed, rendering etcetera, but have more nice functions, for instance a very easy click the link download of YouTube movies, either in Flash or the more useful MPEG4, so you actually can use FrontRow to watch the movies and edit them on a Mac. Besides it has a build-in filter for anything, very useful for ads, not only links but whole div sections! Ah, what a relief - and with no system ad-ons, like PithHelmet, which renders Safari unuseable when it has not been updated to the latest Safari version. The developer is very, very responsive, I asked for the snapback function like in Safari, and got it. The only thing he won't change is the look of the tabs, but you can opt for if you want a close button on the tabs or not. ;) And the width of them! And the yellow iCab design is more warm and Mac friendly than the Safari metal look. I can highly recommend this browser, and I am using it making this review."

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.
Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.
These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
