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.

Wow, I didn't realize that 'Finder' was so vanilla. It's nice to see open source projects like Chrome, Nautilus Elementary, and Dolphin inspiring Mac developers to borrow features from the best of the best!



Then again most of these features were in Openstep 4.0 Beta aka MECCA that never got released, back in 1995.
