[9:00 AM] OS X Like File Viewing Available Now
Greg Landweber has announced Greg's Browser 2.7. It lets you navigate your way through the files on your hard disk, giving a compact multi-pane view of your folder hierarchy. According to Greg Landweber:
Greg's Browser was originally based on the NeXT OS directory browser, which is the same model that Apple will be using for the multiple column view in Mac OS X.
Version 2.7 now lets you edit file type and creator codes by clicking the file kind at the bottom of the Browser window or by pressing <command>-<return>. It also adds an option for live window resizing in the Browser Preferences box. (Note that live resizing is extremely processor intensive and works well only on very fast machines.)
In addition, this version takes full advantage of the StuffIt Engine from Aladdin Systems, letting you directly manipulate the contents of StuffIt 5 archives. There are several other minor changes, including improvements to the file info displayed at the bottom of the Browser window and support for Appearance sound effects under Mac OS 8.5 or later.
Greg's Browser is US$20 shareware and you can find more information about it at Greg Landweber's site.
