Hidden Settings Preference Pane

Hidden Settings is a preference pane that installs into the System Preferences application in Mac OS X. The purpose of it is to provide users an easy way to access some hidden features in the operating system and some applications that ship with it.

Jan 22, 2012: This preference pane is not maintained anymore. There are many other applications available for this purpose, though; the "other similar software" list below could be useful, although it's a bit out of date.
