  1. This is a selection of the more common free software applications available for the Apple macOS platform, and is nothing like a comprehensive list. You may want to check the Runs-on/OS_X category for more software. macOS-only programs may be listed here as well but has external links since the Directory only includes program entries for GNU systems.
  2. Included in the operating system.
  3. Mozilla branded programs such as Firefox and Thunderbird are not free software unless their names are changed. This is due to Mozilla's trademark policy that forbids selling copies of unmodified executables.
  4. Recommends nonfree software.

GNU IceCat (Mozilla Firefox ESR fork) discontinued official macOS support after version 38.8.0.
