YES! This is incredibly helpful for any developer or supporter who needs to know what is going on with a hard disk, and who changes what and where.

The user interface is well done, and has some cool ideas.

I love it!

Finding a proper rating is pretty hard for RapidWeaver, actually.

While it does work as advertised, and gets the job done, it has quite a lot of little issues (the multiple documents bugs, and more).

Also, instead of adding needless eye candy for RapidWeaver 4, the developers should have improved reliability and speed. I really hate to see the stupid progress animation while I sit there waiting for RapidWeaver to just save my document!!!!!

And some things are plain missing, such as proper table support, and even a Find feature that really works (and not just for the main text of the one current page!!!!!)

But again, it can do a lot, and for me, the main reason I have chosen it was the large number of visual attractive themes available, and the ability to handle meta tags properly (important for search engines...).

I also use CDFinder for many years now, and I really don't agree to what DDOGGEREL writes.

The interface of CDFinder 5 is much sleeker and nicer than ever before, and you can customize the new display much better than before (you can make the lists even much smaller now).
Oh, and you use Command-Up to navigate one level up, as I already could in all previous versions... ;-)
And if you drag the divider in the main window all the way to the right, the right list will go away and stay away.
But quite frankly, I love the fact that CDFinder shows me the content of the selected catalog in the main window already.

With the new update to CDFinder 5.1, this becomes even more incredible, and if you ever have the need to finally get to organize your data, CDFinder is the one tool for the job.

The new GPS search in CDFinder is very cool, a good reason to finally get a decent GPS device to track where I take my photos...

You are so entitled to your opinion, but so am I. The new GUI in CDFinder 5 is MUCH better than 4.7, at least in my opinion. I can now scale the display in any way I want (4.7 only offered three sizes of icons), and I even have an icon view for my thumbnails (neither a feature of 4.7 at all).

I don't get it, really.

And the Command-Up short key is avaiable in CDFinder pretty much as long as I use it, at least 4.0. Check out the CDFinder Help...

And last but least: did you talk about all this with the excellent support? I have had some very nice experience with them, they are very helpful and were always able to quickly help me.

Pretty basic at this time, and crashes very often when reading photo previews. Also, the catalog database gets very large quickly, and I hate it when I must create a smart something to perform a simple search...

I like this! Easy to install, does what it claims, and makes my navigation life a lot easier. I usually have loads of windows open, and this helps me a lot. Great! And I love that littel assistant that teaches you the first stteps after installation :-)

Just simply works fine for me!

Uh, this is extremely basic. New with version 3.0 was the ability to actually see the list of volumes catalogued. Go figure.
Others can catalog a LOT more data...

Quite nice app, although the user interface does still have some shortcomings:
- When you delete a picture from the timeline, the scroll will always move to the end
- No way to let a music fade in or out
- No way to start music later than at the exact beginning of a photo being displayed
- doesn't always recognize that a photo is rotated (EOS 350 D), so these photos must be rotated manually, which is tedious
- no way to do some quick photo enhancements, like improving contrast or sharpness

But all in all it is stable, has a nice looking interface, and offers a lot of nice features. A tad expensive...
