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.

Blah blah blah excuses blah bah excuses blah blah.


??? What excuses? That I'm happy with what I have? If that is an excuse to you, I proclaim you a "Foeboy".

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


If you want me to read these reviews, provide some links.

Little Thommy, you are entitled to your opinion, but in the grown up world you must realise that things are not always cut and dry. You hate Finder; that is *your* opinion - others might feel differently. One man's "turd" is another man's treasure. *shrugs*

Well, I couldn't disagree more with him on some points, like the need for spatial file explorers and the need to carry around TWO file browsing metaphors (finder and browser).

But on the other hand... His idea of live searches is something which I've been thinking about for some times. And indeed, it might be a good idea.
