File Freak is a program that offers a new and better way to get at your files. Rather than navigating through several levels of folders in the Finder, or using Apple's relatively slow Sherlock search program, just start typing the name of the file you're looking for into the File Freak window. File Freak dynamically minimizes the matching list of files as you type. Then you have several commands at your disposal including open, move to trash, and open enclosing folder. Most importantly, File Freak gives you the option of only displaying the most recent copy of any files that have the same name.
Version 3.7.1 adds the following:
- Some files were not displaying their long file names correctly
- The program would quit when displaying a file with a long file name that was no longer on the drive
Mac OS 9 or later, CarbonLib 1.1 or later (1.3 or later recommended). Mac OS 8.6 is no longer compatible. File Freak 3.4, the last 8.6 compatible version, can still be downloaded here.
