Path Finder 5.0 adds dual pane browser, sidebar

Path Finder 5 update

Cocoatech has released the latest version of its file management utility, Path Finder 5.0. The update features a new dual-pane browser that allows side-by-side folder display, with support for cut, copy, paste and drag-and-drop functions between the two panes. A sidebar has meanwhile been added, for handling devices, searches, favorite places and network shares. The program can run in tandem with the Mac OS X Finder or as a standalone application, and uses technologies such as Cover Flow and Quick Look.

Path Finder offers features similar to Finder, including List, Icon, and Column views, but with the added capability of Cover Flow. Users can take advantage of a tabbed file browser, and use Drop Stack to drag-and-drop files to a central place for later movement elsewhere.

The Path Navigator displays the current path and allows switching to any folder name to access different areas. Favorite folders can be added to a Bookmarks Bar, while a Go to Folder Shortcut can be used to jump right to a certain path.

An integrated StuffIt engine is claimed to compress and decompress nearly every format. Other tools include Image Converter, Subversion Client, Preview Pane, Terminal, and Disk Burning. Path Finder 5.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and is available from Cocoatech for $40. Registered users of previous versions can upgrade for $20.

    Never regretted buying...

    Watched the screencast, then paid the upgrade. Looks like I can save time with some new workflow enhancements.
