A detailed look at replacing the Finder with Path Finder
Authored by: garbanzito on Mar 12, '04 08:41:16PM

i have used Path Finder to the almost complete exclusion of Finder for several months, but i keep Finder running hidden because there are several features that Path Finder can't replicate.. for one thing, Path Finder doesn't match Finder's AppleScript dictionary, for another, some contextual menus (like XRay) work in Finder and not Path Finder.. i also found using Path Finder's desktop features buggy to the point i turned them off, and use Finder's desktop, but Path Finder's trash

Path Finder is very good, and a more useful tool for me than Finder, but it has enough weaknesses & gaps that i don't advocate complete replacement of Finder.. they coexist peacefully
