- Install IceFloor, a frontend for the firewall pf (openbsd software) which is shipped with macOS. It's amazing.
- Textual is the greatest IRC client ever made, it costs money unless you build it yourself, instructions are here: https://blog.vortigaunt.net/how-to-compile-textual-in-2017/
- iTunes is amazing and integrated really well into the macOS environment, especially if you use Apple Music. Give it a shot.
- Terminal.app works fine most of the time compared to iTerm2's bloat, and it's not written by someone who accidentally leaked a ton of users passwords over http to their DNS servers. It's what I use.
- Macports is also better than homebrew if you're a programmer/have more intricate library/program needs, especially with X11. Homebrew is better if you're inexperienced.
- Safari is a great browser, I use it for uni/work/netflix and Firefox for the rest of my internet needs.
