[3:45 PM] Jerry Needs To Get Some Kids, But Instead Releases Update To Jerry's Finder
by Staff

Manual Labor has released an update to Jerry's Finder, the freeware Finder enhancement utility. Jerry's Finder 9, the update, brings Mac OS 9 compatibility to the program and other enhancements. According to Manual Labor:

In an event that deserves more exclamation points than we consider decent in a family press release, Manual Labor released Jerry's Finder 9 Patch today, generating much hoopla, hullaballoo, and other words that begin with "h."

Jerry's Finder 9 Patch is the successor to the popular Jerry's Finder 8 Patch, which adds command keys, convenience features, and cosmetic enhancements to the Finder in Mac OS 8.0 through 8.6. As the name implies, Jerry's Finder 9 Patch brings all those cool things and more to Mac OS 9.

What's "and more," you ask? Jerry's Finder 9 Patch includes:

  • A much simplified installation procedure
  • An all-new patch that improves the naming of text clippings
  • Tweaks to a few of the existing patches
  • An attractive new graphic for the "About This Macintosh" window
  • Updated documentation and links

And, of course, it's still absolutely free. FREE, I tell you!

Some poor deprived souls reportedly consider Jerry's Finder 9 Patch to be BETTER THAN SEX! Try it and find out how it can enrich _your_ love life.

We can't comment on whether or not Jerry's Finder is better than sex, but you can find more information on the product at the company's web site. The product is freeware.
