OpenVPN is one of the VPN solution I tend to choose because it works on a variety of system platforms and under some of the more extreme conditions, including when I have to tunnel out via a HTTP proxy.

On a Mac I’ve been using tunnelblick for some time, but I found a new GUI client which is far more polished on the GUI side: Viscosity. Viscosity says it

provides a complete OpenVPN solution for Leopard (Mac OS 10.5) and does not require any additional downloads or software.

Some things I like about Viscosity are the keychain integration, Growl notifications and traffic statistics. (See some screenshots here.)

Viscosity isn’t free of charge, but at USD 9.00 (somewhere about EUR 6.50) I find it is quite affordable. I recommend trying it, if you use OpenVPN.
