I only ever used it to get narrow tabs and full-color labels back in the Finder. So worth the money, when it (hopefully) gets upgraded for Big Sur I will happily pay for a new license.

I loved totalfinder in previous OS's but currently, it requires you to turn off system integrity protection to get it to work. That is too much of a sacrifice for convenience.

I've been hoping they'd implement background color in List view (the reason why I still prefer XtraFinder — in 10.11). TotalFinder offers other interesting features, so I'll keep an eye on it for when I switch to Mojave someday — where I won't need background color, I suppose, if I use it in Dark mode...

Very buggy on Big Sur, and it's the same bugs from the last time I tried it; it makes two sets of tabs, the Finder's and its own. Only the Finder tabs work, TF's tabs all show the same view.

I've been using this app for several years and it would be really hard for me to do without it. It's the only app I know that has a double window with independent menus and the visor mode is just amazing.

I'd love to use this because PathFinder is becoming a p.i.t.a. with it's bugs, but compromising my Mac by turning off SIP is just not worth it.

It became a Buggy app on macOS Mojave. I am too tired to tell all, so I just left an example, If you open DMG file, "Tab" function will be broken. This developer is very weak. According to Acknowledgements in this app, I think he just collected some Free Projects on GitHub, and make "TotalFinder." So now, he cannot handle this app, cannot solve any Critical bug. I think I will delete this app.

There are a couple notes I wanted to leave after trying TF again this morning after a few years not using it. The first: everyone already knows, is it requires disabling SIP to use, and run.
The second, which was the main one that frustrated me personally, and why I uninstalled it again, was, it resized all my Finder windows, after install, and opening a window. I uninstalled it, and opened a window that was my original size and navigated in that window to the one that had been resized to restore it. I haven't used TotalFinder since before El Capitan as I just haven't needed the features, even though I paid for a license for it. When I used it, I loved what it had to offer. If there is a way to stop it from resizing windows, I'll try it again.

Thanks.

P.S. I forgot to mention in the original post that I tried TF version 1.11.8 (latest)
I tried it on Mojave 10.14.3 (latest release.)

Love This Add-On but One Wish..... I adore the ability to merge two open windows - that was a genius design move. I love the old-school labels - kudos on that as well. There are a lot of GREAT features and this was well worth my $12 for the superb-but-subtle added functionality. My ONE WISH (Binary Age - you listening?) would be to add the old-school Window Shade Effect where you double-click on the top bar of any window and it rolls UP so you just see the name of the window (e.g. Desktop, Documents, specific personal folder, etc) and the top bar. I LOVED that in older Mac OS versions and have always paid to add that feature when they took it out, but now its impossible to find. BINARY AGE - Please Add A Window Shade Effect !!! Thank you for listening. :)
p.s. Using on High Sierra without a glitch.
