Power Tab for Mac?

Hey, everyone:

Hope this post is in the right place...

I'm looking for a FREE tab writing program, like PowerTab, but one that will run on my Mac. Does anyone know of such a thing?

Sorry, but I forgot what I used to use on a Mac.

I encourage looking at Guitar Pro. You will have one app that works cross platform, generous licensing terms and it handles all the popular formats and also writes your work to a .pdf. Tab Toolkit for iPhone and Touch even supports the format.

Guitar Pro is good for tab- it isn't useful for doing diagrams of scales & chords though, compared to something like Neck Diagram.
