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.

Problem is, the Finder castrated the OPENSTEP paradigm when they got rid of the Shelf. The sidebar is nothing like the Shelf, and completely useless for moving files around.

Short: I want my shelf back!


Not quite the same but... in many ways a replacement for the old NeXT shelf:

Been using it for years, love it! One of the first things I install on every new Mac.
