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.

But I guess Steve has a master plan that shouldn't be questioned - the plan to have the worst file management on all popular platforms. Users don't need files, users need Apps.


That's it in a nutshell. And if you use apps to manage your files instead of a file manager, then Apple can lock you into their apps by storing nearly all metadata in closed formats that can only be read by Apple software.
