I find that the Finder is pretty annoying, even though I've found stuff to add a terminal open command to it, and a copyPath function… but it's still annoying.
I'm thinking about actually biting the bullet and buying Path Finder, as it seems quite good.
- Anybody like/dislike Path Finder particularly?
- Any other file managers worth recommending?
I've checked out Forklift, but it seemed to not have a find function, and MuManager which is cool but it's written in Java, which is fatal for a file manager (lack of system integration).
Edit: I know that I should explain what I don't like about the Finder, since it does work and it is fast. Most of what I don't like is a "feel" thing: I've always got all these windows open and none of them is looking at the right location. Or I get someplace good and then I realize that I want open another window from there. You cannot right click to open in a tab nor another Window, you cannot right click to open in terminal nor to copy the path (though I have plugins for that)… but there are lists about this stuff, or I could just list pathfinder's features too…
A new-file command!
Also, you do not have a type-in-able SMART location bar with each finder window (though the go-to location exists, it is NOT the idea whatsoever… in Pathfinder it at least suggests as you go, which even the bash shell itself has!)
