Editorial This day-after-Thanksgiving, when many Americans are enjoying a day off and several others are at work goofing around on OSNews, we decided to ask you: what's your "killer app?" What's the one app you can't live without? Sound off in the comments - one app only!

I can use a different web browser, or mail client to get mail, most any will get the basic job done. iFolder solves so many file sync problems, I don't think I could live without it.

-Cross platform support, Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
-Web interface to get a files when I'm not on one of my computers, https
-Keeps my files in sync to server for backup
-Lets me work on the same set of files on my desktop computer and my laptops
-Syncs over the internet, so I don't have to worry about forgetting to sync at the office before I hit the road with encryption
-All totally in the background, very rarely has a conflict and syncs often enough to not miss anything before shutting down

Not sure when the open source builds have last been updated but the 3.6 version is part of Open Enterprise Server 2 http://www.novell.com/products/openenterpriseserver/ . The open source site is http://www.ifolder.com .

Happy long weekend...
