The Mac OS X Finder works great on its own for finding and managing your files and folders, but what if there was something better? Path Finder offers a slew of options for organizing files and folders, giving you more control over your file system. You can use Cover Flow, split-screen, and icon views, and there are several preview options for finding out more about files before you open them. It also allows you to compress and decompress folders from within the program when you need more space on your hard drive.
