Goliath is an application that creates and edits websites. It uses a technology called WebDAV (frequently called Web Folders) to make changes to the files stored on web servers. It is the first (and still the only) application to implement WebDAV on the Macintosh. Goliath exposes functionality similar to that found in the Windows version of Internet Explorer 5 plus many other features that are unique to the Mac. With Goliath, users can:
- View the contents of a web site in a Finder-like fashion (including size, modification date and type)
- Upload new files to a website
- Create new folders in web sites
- Delete files and folders on a web site
- Rename files on a web server
- Download copies of files on a web server using Drag & Drop (including delete by dragging to the Trash)
- Bookmark DAV resources for easy navigation
- Lock and make changes to existing files on a web server (using the applications of their choice)
- Display and editing of properties
- Duplicate items stored on web servers
- Native MacOSX support via Carbon.
What's new in this version:
- Files with a / in their name are now handled properly.
- A crash while trying to view the contents of folders that the current user does not have permissions to access.
