If you're up and running on a Mac, you know that Finder is your friend. And your enemy. Like Windows Explorer on a PC, Finder is the file manager and application manager you use to navigate around on your computer. There's lots of cool stuff you can do with it, but it does have its limitations as well.

Xfolders is a Mac file manager app that can work with or instead of Finder. Its main window has two panes, so you can look at two different folders—or volumes—at the same time. Drag and drop files, copy and paste them between panes. Compare files and folders to see what they have in common and where they differ. Show or hide hidden "dot" files and other system files. And it's got a built-in terminal for one-off Unix-y commands, as well as an internal image preview tool to let you see what's in the folder you're digging through.

Xfolders is a free download. It's a Mac application and runs on systems up through (at least) OS X 10.5 (Leopard), on both PowerPC and Intel-powered Macs.
