Path Finder trial

After what I thought was a fair trial of Path Finder, I’m back using to using the regular ol’ Finder again. I didn’t run across anything especially bad about Path Finder, but I didn’t run across anything compelling, either.

About a week ago, after a couple of weeks of constant use, I turned off Path Finder. My thinking was that if I missed it, it’d be worth returning to. I haven’t even thought about it until today—a strong sign that it just isn’t for me.

I know there are lots of smart people who swear by Path Finder, but this is the fourth or fifth time I’ve given it a trial run, and it’s never stuck with me. I won’t be trying it again.

The best thing to came out of that post was a link from Vítor Galvão to this wonderful set of AppleScript excerpts for getting the URL and title of the active browser tab for Safari, Chrome, Chrome Canary, Chromium, and WebKit. Turns out™ I could’ve been using a one-liner for the Chrome portion of my ;furl snippet.
