This is a Java app which makes it very unMac-like.

As another reviewer has noted, the app freezes when expanding folders. I had to force quit the app when it froze attempting to present some special offer for purchase.

Based on the unstable nature of the user interface, and the fact it's based on Java, I would not trust this app to copy or deleted files.

On the plus side, the user interface I was able to access is intuitive and easy to use. This app needs more testing. It's not ready for prime time.

The old version ran beautifully, but this new version has major issues running on my Tiger install. It is constantly freezing (and resulting in a beach ball of death), particularly when trying to expand folders after performing a comparison.

Looks to work well. Clear layout of what is happening. Lots of useful options.

Could be a little more Mac-like, eg, doesn't remember the last folder you opened, icons look a bit like Windows icons.

Keyboard keys Page Down, Home, etc do not work.

It also seems pretty slow, but it is not really. It's just the way it displays progress, I think.
