BOINC Manager

BOINC Manager allows you to use your processor's idle time to help advance research for ethical causes. It does this by downloading packages of information about 100MB in size, processing them, and uploading the results to a central server. It is secure, and can be configured not to run while you're on battery, and you can limit the resources and space it uses as well as operating times. 
Causes include Malaria Control, Climate Prediction and protein research projects. Once running, BOINC sits happily in your menu bar and works on any number of causes you select.
