Rearrange the Finder's sidebar sections via drag and drop System 10.8
Rearranging the sections in the sidebar of Finder windows used to be a beast. That hasn't been the case since the introduction of Mountain Lion.

You can drag and drop sections like Favorites, Devices, and Shared to reorder them however you'd like. And when you do so, the change is immediately effective in all Finder windows already open.

Even better, of course: The change is reflected in any new Finder windows you open, too.

Rearrange the Finder's sidebar sections via drag and drop

A very nice feature, but sadly it doesn't reorder the sidebar in the same way the Save and Open dialogues... :-(

Maybe in Mavericks..?

Actually it works the same way in Open and Save dialogues :)
Likewise it's possible to rearrange items within each section of the Sidebar.
