The Finder has improved in each version of OS X, but some users still wish it had a few more features—or at least more flexibility in using the features it already has. Path Finder 4.1.1, a Finder alternative, can help. It gives you more viewing options, such as tabbed windows, file owner and group columns in list view, and the ability to sort in column view. Path Finder’s windows include a handy Drop Stack area, which lets you temporarily store files and folders. You can even view many files with Path Finder’s built-in text editor and PDF viewers, and create disk images and compress files directly from Path Finder windows. If you decide that you like using Path Finder more than the Finder itself, you can have Path Finder quit the Finder and take its place.
