After updating to my Macbook to snow leapard I was facing serious performance issues. Sometimes it even slows down the entire system. I tried reinstalling the newest version. Still problems didnt go away. There is still no firefox intel 64 build for snowleapard yet.
I find out Shiretoko recently it works amazing,

Mac ports is the way to use most of the opens source software from the community on Macs. Recently I found out new tool named Porticus, that makes the life so easy.
Porticus for Macports
Setting up Porticus for the first time – snow leapard
1) Install macports, downloading the dmg – checkout Macports website for updates
2) Install Porticus downloading from Porticus website
That is it. It is realy usefull tool to try free software on mac. Feels like one of the software package management GUIs Linux users enjoy
