Like Spotlight for Experts
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 offers many other options to work with them.

Photos and Webcams on Your Desktop
With PhotoStickies you have your dearest ones always with you at your Mac. Or at least pictures of them. PhotoStickies shows your favorite pictures directly on your desktop, floating and, if you like, borderless.
PhotoStickies also shows live webcams on your desktop and updates them automatically. You can even record them or make them your desktop picture.
