TotalFinder tries to provide a Finder.app better for programmers and Mac power users. TotalFinder will load into Finder and improves it by adding several useful features: tabs, folders on top, dual panel, and other more useful features. The reason is clear: Finder.app has been rewritten into Cocoa in Snow Leopard which finally made this hacking possible.

Tabbed Browsing:
You already know tabs from your web browser. For example, in Safari the tabs are sheets for displaying multiple web pages within one browser window.

Similarly, in TotalFinder tabs display multiple directories within one window. TotalFinder uses the code from Google's Chrome web browser, which is why the tabs look and behave in a similar way.

Dual Mode:
Dual mode is a special mode where TotalFinder displays two Finder windows side-by-side. It is a similar view to what can be seen in classic dual-panel file managers. This is handy in situations when you want to move files from one panel to the other easily.

Please note that individual Finder windows still behave the same as if they were individual windows. For example both windows keep their own toolbar. The only difference is that TotalFinder places the sidebar of the right-side window to the right edge and syncs its width with the left sidebar.

You may enter dual mode by double-clicking a tab or pressing ?U. The selected tab will join with the tab next to it and form dual tabs with two file browsers side-by-side. To leave dual mode double-click the dual tab again. The advantage of this setup is that you can create multiple dual tabs and manipulate them the same way as single tabs.

Folders on Top:
By default Finder does not separate folders and files and displays them mixed as you can see on the left.

However, some users prefer to see first folders and then files regardless of actual sorting options.

TotalFinder enables toggle of this display by a keyboard shortcut.

Show System Files:
By default Finder does not display hidden (system) files.

TotalFinder adds a keyboard shortcut to toggle display of these files without the need to restart Finder.

Visor:
Visor is a system-wide TotalFinder window displaying at the bottom of the screen. The idea is to have one dedicated TotalFinder instance always ready just one key press away. This functionality is inspired by Terminal.app's Visor.

This feature is disabled by default. It is meant to be enabled by advanced users who want to adopt a Visor-based workflow. It works best when you have auto-hiding Dock panel enabled.

Cut & Paste:
Use keyboard shortcuts to move files around. Faster than drag & drop.
