Talk about handing someone a gun so they can shoot you in the head. Sorry, MacUpdate. This sucks for you.

Super convenient, but when are you going to put the custom icon back in the application?

I'm afraid my brief experience was not entirely positive. I installed 1.1 yesterday. The first thing I noticed on my system was that the tabs were not painting properly. With two tabs visible, both were painted as foreground tabs so they flowed into one big tab, visually. I unistalled.

I tried 1.1.1 today. I didn't notice the cosmetic tab problem I had seen in the previous version, however a bigger problem this time. Freshly opened windows would not respond to clicks, except to close a tab. Once a tab was closed, the windows responded to clicks normally. I unistalled again.

I should also note that TotalFinder does not uninstall entirely cleanly. It will remove (or doesn't restore) your folder open/close animation on its way out of your system. A trip to the Terminal and/or TinkerTool are required to restore the effect.

I'll wait a few more versions before trying again.

Just a question about OS X "cut" behavior. With NTFS, if you copy and paste a file, it inherits the permissions of the destination. If you cut and paste, it takes its perimissions with it.

Is OS X different?

The last thing I've ever gotten from a getSatisfaction "forum" was satisfaction. I do wish developers would abandon this dismal "service."

I hope you were being fesicious, for that is a truly STUPID idea.

Why don't you pay 50 bucks for Fetch instead -- or write your own FTP software.

@FOLLEREC - First of all, I'm not sure "donationware" is anything other than a philosophical concept. And even if it is a real class of software, by the very definition of the word "donation," payment is not required. A donation is a freely given gift - not something that is required. A tithe is requred, not a donation.

Secondly, recompiling the software to remove the nag screen is of course highly unethical unless you are a memeber of the Cyberduck team and the consensus of the team is for you to do so.

... Unless you're talking about recompiling for your own use.

Cool looking interface. The developer seems to have a good grasp on the low-level stuff that goes into programming a file manager.

However, neither the name nor the app icon distinguish this application from the Finder itself. Plus, it ain't "cute" enough. I shall now offer some free marketing advice: Rename the application "Tabby" and use an app icon along these lines:

Am I missing something here? Downloaded it. It's undeniably cool-looking and does what it's supposed to, but many (most) Internet radio stations crossfade tracks. You end up with tracks in Snowtape that have scraps from other songs at the beginnings and ends of them -- which of course, sounds awful.

I guess I didn't really expect Snowtape to magically workaround the crossfade problem, but still ...

To me, this issue seriously limits software fo this type in general.

... unless someone can enlighten me as to what I've been doing wrong.
