It simulates the layout of the Panther Finder decently. But in OS 9 I didn't see any of the Aqua I was hoping for... And even worse, it was so slow. Unlike the actual OS 9 Finder, it was jerky and really slow in switching directories. The actual Panther Finder worked smoothly on my computer, the way this app should.

I hate to be a spoilsport but I gave it a try and all I can say is the developer ought to to take a good look at Greg's Browser. GB provided better functionality than this 8 years ago. Better luck next time.

Regardless of the shareware/freeware question, I'm more interested in simulating the jaguar finder under Panther. ;P

Very good job so far. The one thing I notice right off the bat is that Pfinder is listed here as FREE, but it is actually SHAREWARE. The author should change this right away. As far as the actual program though, it appears to do a good job in OS 10 (haven't tested in OS 9) with blending the new features of the Pather Finder with the OS 9 layout. What it has all seems useful. It just needs a bit more cusomization options and feature-sync with the actual Finder to become a viable alternative to the Finder from Apple.

This is not free. It is a beta for a shareware verson that there will be a fee for when finally released. I find it somewhat deceptive to call it free when a shareware fee is planned. In fairness, at least the developer is up-front about it as opposed to most who bait and switch (free beta then switch to fee when the initial product is formally released). FYI; If I am going to test a product, and document problems back to the developer, I do not think it is fair that I have to pay for the final version. After all, I have spent my time and effort to test the product and insure its functionality and that should be worth something to the developer. That goes for all shareware and commercial software, not just this product. Note that most software testers get between $18 to over $50 hr to test software in the US. Testers that report back bugs should get the initial release of the final version free. If that is not clearly stated up-front, then I respectfully decline to test the software for the developer, but will wait to the initial release of the final product and read the reviews before spending my money. I have not run this product but am rating it neutral in order to have this comment posted. However I am giving it poor value for the reason above.
