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.

I generally like a simple file management interface. But then really all I do is save and open files, and I keep them organized so I know where to look for them.

I love the Nautilus look with the bread crumbs. In fact I wish mac os x had retained the breadcrumb-like bar from NEXTSTEP (they KIND of did, but I don't like their implementation of it) which would make dragging and dropping and file organizing a little more simple.

There is an Explorer-like app for Windows that added a bread crumb. I wish Windows would... but I don't need it like I said above, I have my own system and too many gadgets and sparkly bits would just get in my way.
