I have the latest version of RipIt already. Does DVDRemaster do anything significantly different that that app? Or is it just a competitor and they basically do the same thing... rip from DVDs and transcode to various video/audio formats? Thanks!

I don't have this software, but it sounds great. I'm looking for a Finder replacement or (because I know Apple makes a TRUE replacement nearly impossible), an improved Finder-like program :)

The big question: Forklift or Disk Order? Or are they different animals? And are there other programs that deserve to be in the discussion? Any suggestions would be wonderful, thanks.

After more reading, maybe the question is Forklift, Disk Order, Path Finder, and/or TotalFinder? Which do you prefer and are any of them usable in combo with another, such as TotalFinder plus one of the other three? Or is that asking for trouble...

Yeah, that's a nice perk, especially since I'm started up a Wordpress site quite soon and will likely need to FTP lots of stuff. I think I'll grab the demo or older version and just see how I like the look & feel. Thanks for the response.

Nontroppo, thanks for the comments. I guess it's a matter of using them all and then choosing (wish all software that wasn't free at least had a FULL-FEATURED trial period, hear that devs?). I'm leaning toward Fork Lift more and more, but I'm one of those darned perfectionists and it tends to take me forever to make up my mind... :-S

Perfect combo with µTorrent, as mentioned. As for BTJunkie, I don't really think it's any easier to browse to a site (or keep it open in a tab) than it is to keep this app open. Also, BTJunkie has occasionally not given me all the results I'm looking for; for example, if I actually browse to TPB or Demonoid and search, I'll often find more than what BTJunkie found. Lastly, there are browser extension that will do this kind of meta-site searching, but I for one hate loading my browsers with extensions – too many chances of conflicts and possibility of slowing things down since they stay resident in memory even when I'm not out torrent hunting. This one seems like a nice compromise. I can launch it when I need it...

Why only a net +2 on this app, I wonder? I was forced to use Windows for a long time, though I've also used Apple computers since the original Apple II and all the way up to my present 200 iMac 27". I found VLC indispensable on the PCs at work – it was one of the first proggies that could play nearly *anything* you threw at it, audio or video. And it was compact, and free! When I found it was available for Mac OS X I didn't even hesitate, and have been using it as my primary media player at home, too. Sure, it's got some flaws and some limitations. For one, it's not a home theater program like Plex, nor is it a music database/library like iTunes. You can queue stuff up, but it's really made to just be a "one free, small app opens almost any media file" ...er, app. And for that, I have yet to find anything better. One think I love is there's no need to download separate codec backs, which can be a nightmare. And just because it's simple to use doesn't mean it's not powerful... just check out the advanced features for syncing audio and video (in those files where the lips don't quite match the speech), for doing decent postprocessing on the video *while it plays*, and so on. I'm not saying VLC doesn't everything for everyone, it obviously doesn't, but for what it DOES do for a huge audience and for handling a huge range of formats & containers, and doing it for FREE, I have to give it 5 stars.

Sorry for replying to my own post, but just saw Liberty's comment before mine, and YES, AirPlay support would be very nice. Also, I've yet to see how it does under Mountain Lion. But given VideoLan's track record, I'm betting they'll patch it quickly should there be any problems.
