Path Finder is a favorite of Mac power users who need a full-featured file browsing system that can run rings around the Finder. With Path Finder 6, the folks at Cocoatech have put together an advanced Finder replacement that is so easy to use you may just forget about the Finder.
Path Finder 6
Path Finder offers a couple of tons of features that make it more usable than the basic Finder. Some of my favorites include tabs for quickly changing between folders; dual-pane browsing, so you can see, as well as drag-and-drop between, multiple locations; batch renaming; and file tagging. My current favorite feature is the Drop Stack, which lets me collect files and folders in a temporary holding spot, and then copy or move them to new locations when I'm ready. This frees me from having to leave one or more folders open just so I can drag things around.
Path Finder offers so many attractive and useful features that I highly recommend taking the demo for a spin.
Path Finder 6 is $40.00. A 30-day demo is available.
