OSXFUSE Comments

Good replacement for Macfuse

If you're like me, the only reason you would install OSXFuse is to enable support for NTFS-3G in Lion and Mountain Lion. In which case, you've come to the right app. OSXFuse works great for that.

You'll probably also want to install the fuse-wait patch. Otherwise, NTFS-3G will you give you mounting errors every time you boot Mac OS X, even with OSXFuse installed.
