Mac OS X It's a public secret that there are many people with complaints about Mac OS X's Finder. It lacks several features common to other file managers, and on top of that, it has several issues with dealing with some types of network shares (SAMBA, specifically). While third parties can't fix the bugs, they can extend the Finder's feature set. TotalFinder is a collection of Finder extensions that tries to bring some of Google Chrome's interface ideas to the Finder. BinaryAge was kind enough to provide me with a free license so I could give a quick review of TotalFinder.

Just click "Size" tab in Finder's window and you've got your folders first.


Sure, or you could add a space in front of the word "Folder" in "InfoPlist.string" and then sort by "Kind", but why bother with these terrible workarounds? I mean, it's not like we're asking for the Sun and the Moon. It's just something that every file manager out there has.

Lack of "cut & paste" is really painful sometimes. Maybe I'll try to write something during Christmas time.
