Both are excellent, especially if you’re doing flow charts, process diagrams, or anything else that requires chunks of information to be connected visually by lines that adapt and move when you move the various parts around.

For overall drawing work, I prefer Intaglio another Mac OS X-only application. It’s much more powerful than is immediately apparent. I especially like the amount of control it provides over gradients.

Nvu is good, but it has some quirks, especially in its support for CSS authoring. Many of the bugs in Nvu v1.0 have been fixed in KompoZer.

Consider giving Visual Paradigm for UML a try. It’s a huge application, and the Enterprise edition integrates with Eclipse, NetBeans and other IDE’s, and generally it does a LOT of stuff that I personally would never use, but you can install the Community edition for free and then you can make use of its UML database modeling. It’s a complex program, but if you need the strict UML diagram functionality (e.g. for commercial documentation) then this is a good choice.

RazorSQL ($60). Don’t know if it’s any good…
