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.

About missing "folders first" option. Maybe I'm missing something here (correct me if I'm wrong), but you're thinking about this?

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


That's a rather lame work-around. I atleast prefer to have folders first, then all the files in alphabetic order. But with your work-around the files wouldn't anymore be sorted by their alphabetic order.
