10.4: Use Automator to open chosen folder in Terminal
Authored by: pauljlucas on Sep 01, '05 11:59:59AM

No, it's much shorter. You have to click, drag down to the Automator menu item, drag sideways to pop-up the Automator menu, drag down again to the cd item. Then the script has to run. This takes at least 5 seconds.

Dragging a folder to a Terminal window takes about 2 seconds.

10.4: Use Automator to open chosen folder in Terminal

Which is great if:

a) You already have Terminal running.

and

b) You already have the characters "cd" typed into the command prompt so you can go to that directory.

Otherwise, using the Automator script is much more convenient.
