FileBrowse 3D file utility

R Green Blue today announced FileBrowse, a new easy-to-use file browser for Mac OS X featuring 3D icons, 3D thumbnails, and large in-context previews with grouping as well as sorting capabilities. "The standard file browser on the Mac is the Finder, which can show thumbnails of image files, but shows all other files and folders as standard icons. Because all items of a certain type have the same icon, it's hard to distinguish the items. The icons don't give any clue about the specific contents of the files and folders," wrote R Green Blue. FileBrowse can show thumbnails for numerous file types, while folder icons can display the contents inside without actually opening the folder. FileBrowse uses 3D icons rather than pre-generated drawings, rendered in real-time with perspective and anti-aliasing to remove jagged edges. FileBrowse is currently in private beta status, with version 1.0 expected by mid-August for $25 (system requirements were unavailable).
