Not too shabby, hardly notice it. Better than Sophos I think and the reviews I’ve seen say it’s better at detecting viruses.

I can’t say enough about PathFinder it really is a like a Swiss army knife and full Finder replacement. Where programs like XtraFinder and TotalFinder path the Apple Finder and gives new features, this is a separate app that leaves the finder alone.

It comes with stuff reminiscent of built in like;
1. Impressive Batch File Renaming (E.g., Better Finder Rename, File Buddy)
2. Selection filters (e.g., A Better Finder Select, File Buddy)
3. Dual-Pane Finder-like windows (e.g., XtraFinder, TotalFinder)
4. Terminal access, built-in to the main window
5. Turn on/off invisibility of files with a toolbar icon (e.g., iShow Invisible, File Buddy)
6. Option to queue finder operations
7. Tabbed Windows (e.g., XtraFinder, TotalFinder)
8. Cut & Paste for files (e.g., XtraFinder, TotalFinder)
9. Compress & decompress files via the Stuffit engine
10. Built-in text editor, Image Viewer, PDF/Word file Viewer
11. On top of that it is much faster than the Finder (for me) with most operations

I still give it 5-Stars although I would like convenient stuff like;
1. Windows style file grouping (for example by kind)
2. The option to create a folder for a batch of files like Apple Finder
3. “Get Group Info“ windows like File Buddy - instead of opening multiple “Get Info” windows
4. A simpler process to change the file attributes for a group of files. It can be done by group select then batch rename. In File Buddy you could make a group of files have the same extension like a selected example.

Everybody who misses File Buddy should give it a try, you won’t go back. Plus it leaves the Finder there for when I need it. All in all an OUTSTANDING and STABLE product!!!! 6 STARS!!

C’mon guys, I’m running out of accolades. I can only give 5 stars.

I think Song Sergeant is a better tool for this purpose, it does this and much more. An indispensable for me and my music.

I got this to download online courses, the only program that I have found on OSX that could, and it’s AMAZINGLY FAST when downlaoding streaming videos!! Not like others I’ve seen that appear to watch the video and record it.

I have been using it for over a year now and I have very few complaints. Sure I wish I could choose what to download. Right now, it just watches the browser and literally takes everything that moves and that can be annoying - but, a small price I think.

I rarely use the conversion feature, for that I use iFFmpeg, but when I did, I had no isues.

There are other programs I'm sure but I am pleased since it has accomplished what others couldn't. So if your purpose is as singular as mine and there is a video that you simply MUST download but just can't, this may be the program for you.

You may be surprised to find that it works where others have failed.

Give the menubar clock settings I have with MenuCalendarClock for iCal and I’m sold. That’s my hold-up.

I do have an issue though, when I start up the machine and Path Finder quits the Apple Finder automatically, I have manually to do the SHIFT-F2 for Change desktop to kick in. I figure I just need and Apples script to launch automatically, after Change Desktop. Having said that, does anybody out there know how to do that?

Very good! Restores the automatic desktop picture change when using Path Finder. Plus the benefit of a different desktop picture for each space (when using spaces). Plus the price is just right!! I always say if its free, its worth every penny.
