Conflict Catcher was a popular utility software application for the Mac OS, written by Jeff Robbin and published by Casady & Greene. It aided Macintosh users in solving operating system conflicts with extensions and control panels (see Extension conflict). Conflict Catcher included a printed manual written by David Pogue.

An OS X version was never released, since OS X did not provide a facility for extensions until OS X 10.10 Yosemite, and modern Mac extensions do not result in extension conflicts. The last version of Conflict Catcher was version 9, for Mac OS 9, sales were already declining and in 2003 Casady & Greene filed for bankruptcy. Conflict Catcher 9 was priced at $63, significantly higher than average prices for utility software.
