I had been using Path Finder since version 3.0 came out years ago. As a power user, I loved the extra features. Tab browsing was big, and being able to move files around without duplicating and dragging was great.
However, Path Finder and Mojave haven’t been playing too nice together recently. The biggest issue is that Pathfinder doesn’t seem to update windows or the desktop when files change. For example, if you delete a file from the desktop, it still appears in Path Finder. Since displaying correct file information is the main task for file browsers, I stopped using Path Finder until this particular issue resolved.
I’ve been now using plain ol’ Finder and I find that I really don’t miss a lot of the power features of Path Finder. Over the years, Finder has improved. Many of the must have features that brought me to Path Finder (such as tabbed browsing) are in Finder. Others, like Stuffit integration no longer seem so important. Then there’s other important features such as iCloud folders and Dropbox integration that just don’t work very well in Path Finder.
I was wondering what your experience with Finder and Finder alternatives such as Path Finder has been over the last year or two? Is Finder good enough for power users? Or, do products like Path Finder still fill in a niche that the Finder cannot?
