Secrets - A database of hidden settings for Mac OS X

Secrets is a preference pane that lets you customize many Mac OS X settings that are hidden or incomplete.



 Word of advise: Many of these values can harm your system if used improperly. Use it at your own risk!

Holy fuck I'm getting this =P I've seen/changed many of these settings in Terminal already tbh, but if people want to change them, they should be in System Preferences I recon.

Secrets are good but to make a quote "For 3 people to keep a secret 2 must be dead".

That would be great, but the only Mac I have is from the 90s. And back then we all just used to call them Macintoshes. XD

Incomplete settings? What?

As for accessing hidden settings, it sounds like GodMode on Windows 7. (Create a new folder and rename it, "GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}")
