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.

Are you really comparing 2010's Finder with 2000's BeOS Tracker? My my, some standards we have...


What's the problem about this? Old software does not have to be bad just because it's old. I actually liked the old Mac OS Finder (pre OS X) better than the new one (and both are miles better then any other file manager I used so far on any platform).

Of course, newer software might have some additional features but the basics - file management - stays the same and either works for you or it doesn't ..
