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.

Now go read Siracusa's countless Mac OS X reviews and his other articles on the Finder

Funny enough, I can't remember that Siracusa criticized those things you claim to be so important ..

Siracusa's main critics are about the loss of old Mac OS Finder behaviour like spacial finder or file metadata. NOT about tabs or other gimmicks that TotalFinder introduces.

Nice if TotalFinder helps some people being more productive with the Mac. But that does not mean Finder is broken, just different.
