Cruz is an exciting new browser from the creator of Fluid that integrates some innovative multi-window and social networking features into your web surfing experience.

Cruz is still on version 0.4, so it’s not necessarily fair to evaluate it as a finished product, but we still wanted to show off what it can do so far. Let’s get started!

While Mac.AppStorm is naturally going to be your first (and most awesomest) stop when reading Mac and App news, there are plenty of other great blogs out there. Today we wanted to give a shout out to a few other essential Mac and App reads to add your RSS reader or bookmarks list!

Radium’s grown up a lot since we first reviewed it, so be sure to check out our review of Radium 3, the latest version, as well!

I’m a bit of a BBC Radio 4 and World Service addict. We have a couple of digital radios in the house, and with the UK’s Freeview television network, it’s easy to listen to a number of digital stations via your TV. When I’m on the road away from any of my radios, and have access to a wireless network, I’ve used Phantom Gorilla’s unofficial BBC Radio Widget to get my fix.

That all looks likely to change, now that Radium has arrived. Read on for a walk-through of a simple and effective radio app that makes it very easy to tune in to your favourite stations – and discover hundreds of new ones – on your Mac.

Remember all those great video games you had when you were younger? Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could download and play those games on your Mac? It turns out you can.

Today we enter into some seriously shaky territory that often stretches the bounds of both legality and awesomeness: the world of Mac emulators. More specifically the good ones, clones of old video game consoles. It’s a brilliant way to re-create a nostalgic experience on OS X, and relive the thrill of timeless gaming classics.

What a great service YouTube is. It’s all too easy to lose sight of how revolutionary it was when it first launched. It broke all kinds of rules and expectations of how we watch video, and how we relate to its distribution. It opened up broadcasting, allowing anybody at all with a video recording device to easily and quickly make their videos available to anybody, anywhere.

YouTube also did something curious to how we consume news: just about any story that hits the headlines is likely to have an accompanying video on YouTube. Remember when Michael Jackson died? It didn’t take long for recordings of the ambulance leaving his home to start popping up on YouTube. For many of us, YouTube’s become a frontline news service – along with Twitter.

Unfortunately, YouTube is far from perfect. From the small-minded, snarky comments, right through to the frustrating use of Flash. Nowadays I rarely visit YouTube at all, and when I do, it’s just to get a URL for a video, or to jump from that page to a different service.

Our site is well-known for its long lists of tips and app recommendations. This article is different: I’m going to recommend just three ways to make YouTube better.
