FolderGlance - A contextual menu drill-down tool
Authored by: isilver on Dec 05, '05 04:09:56PM

Folder Glance and FinderPop both work in different ways to each other. FG menu's are accessed by mousing over user-configurable "hot-spots" on the left & right side of the screen, FP by control-clicking on a folder. Personally I prefer the way FP works in this regard.

The killer feature in FG is its ability to preview the content of the items you mouse over, e.g. navigate to a folder of images, movies, pdfs etc and you will be ablet to view a re-sizeable preview of those items - even movies will play in context without launching the relevant application. The FG webpage has a movie which shows you how it works if you would like to see it in action.

If FG menu's were accessed similarly to FP I'd only need the one program but for now both are required ... who knows what will happen with FP2 when it is released.

Sorry I made an error :-(

- I have accidentally compared FinderPop to a sweet little application called "Filegazer" - check that one out as well (http://www.donelleschi.com/filegazer/ ) ... I haven't tried Filegazer yet ...
