"Works well and it's easy"

August 12, 2002

 |  Version: Finder's Friend 1.5.1

Summary

I like to use this when I am surfing the web and have many windows open or I am downloading. It is easy and fast.
I don't have any hard data on how effective it is but it seems to make things go a bit smoother.

"works well in quit finder mode"

March 25, 2001

 |  Version: Finder's Friend 1.5.1

Summary

But I have noticed that it only works on my machine (G3 OS 8.6) by quitting the finder with this software for longer than is allowed for a restart. In other words I keep a tiny application running (of a few k), quit the finder, then quit the app, and presto I get the largest unused block of RAM back up. I would say that it takes my machine longer than this software allows using the restart to accomplish this and this is why I need to use the quit option. But the restart option is more convenient. Is there some way that the restart could delay the finder's return? (By the way, repeated restarts as recommended do not accomplish the task). I cannot find any address for the author who welcomes a line but forgets to put in a contact address. Can anyone help here?
