What is TotalFinder?

TotalFinder works like the normal Finder but adds tabs, dual panel, colored labels and other features. My goal is to improve Finder in a few areas where it is lacking but keep the general design.

Features:

  • Colored labels: Brings full colors back into El Capitan.
  • Chrome tabs: Apple finally introduced tabs in Mavericks. TotalFinder added Chrome tabs in Snow Leopard.
  • Dual mode: Display two Finder windows side-by-side on hot-key.
  • Visor window: The Finder is always one key-press away!
  • Cut & Paste: Use keyboard shortcuts to move files around. Faster than drag & drop.

TotalFinder is a plugin, not a replacement

Please keep in mind that TotalFinder is an add-on which gets loaded into the Finder when you launch TotalFinder.app. It does not modify your Finder files on the disk. TotalFinder is installed as a standalone application. But when launched it changes the current instance of Finder running in memory. I call this process TotalFinder injection into Finder.

Adding tabs to Finder is brilliant. But it's not just that, it fixes other features too, which Apple should have done themselves. It adds the cut+paste function for files, the option to display all folders at the top, and the ability to show hidden files with a keyboard shortcut.

It integrates seamlessly with the original Finder. Well worth the $18.

Path Finder has more features than TotalFinder, since Path Finder is a full-fledged Finder replacement, while TotalFinder just adds tabs and some other small stuff. However, I like TotalFinder a little bit better because its tabs are styled exactly like tabs in Google Chrome (a personal favorite), so I'm actually used to working with it.

Path Finder also has tabs, but I cannot remember the last time I actually used the feature unconsciously. The design is just too clunky. I'm willing to sacrifice a few features in Path Finder (that I barely use anyways) for the better usability of TotalFinder.

TotalFinder is probably.. no wait! It is the single most useful addon application for OS X!

BinaryAge finally brings the joy and necessity of tabs to Finder, just the way it should be. The single most important feature you've been missing. Thankfully, Apple's reluctance to properly develop Finder, has resulted in this nifty little addon application that I would gladly label a significant, albeit, small revolution for all Mac OS X users.

Say goodbye to multiple Finder windows and say hello to tabs (as many as you like) and the dual-mode view which is nothing short of ingenious. Using Finder has never been more fun or productive. The good people at BinaryAge surely deserve all the attention and apprisal they can get. Kudos!
