Cocoatech: Path Finder 4

I'm very happy to share that PathFinder 4 is now out and available for download at Cocoatech's site. I've been beta-testing this badboy for a couple months now and can happily confer upon it my official okey-dokey. It's one badass Finder replacement that power-users will find pretty foxy.

I may try to do a longer review in the next week or four, but I wanted to be sure and spread the word -- the tabs, the search/filter by string, the improved interface widgets -- dang, there's a lot to like here. Turn on as many or as few of the drawers as you need, and make yourself a happy little MacBatcave. Life inside a single Finder window is closer than ever. Great work, guys.

Be patient if the Cocoatech site is a bit slow -- I predict people are going to be downloading and buying the crap out of this.

I have been waiting for...

I have been waiting for this for a long time.

PathFinder 3 was really good. It just wasn't magical. But 4.0 appears to have a whole mess of mojo under the hood and so far I'm in total nirvana -- the ability to use the tabs works great, my only complaint is that I can't seem to set terminal size from the Path Finder terminal.

This is important when my screen(8) sessions are setup using a term size of 48x80, my pine session gets all wonky if I attach to a screen and the terms don't match.

Path Finder really nails the "create something Apple should include by default" concept. It makes the Finder look like a 2-legged dog with the mange.

You'll probably want to put the Finder down like Yeller once you use this for a day as well. I love it. I'll be buying it soon.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless
