Here’s with some idea that I would have loved Apple to implement in Mavericks, although I know they won’t. It’s a simple (hum…) idea that I originally took from KDE interface:
PROBLEM: when transferring files, the Finder shows 2 things (three with TotalFinder running) : the transfer window (with time remaining etc…), the progress bar near the file(s) being transferred and a progress bar below the Finder icon in Dock. Now my rant is obvious: the transfer window is no more appropriate! It should have been removed from OSX once progress bars appeared in Finder in the first place. What’s the point otherwise to add a clutter free progress bar ???
(POSSIBLE) SOLUTION: And for my solution, it goes with the addition of a progress bar below the Finder icon in Dock: we know it’s possible to show “bubbles” above Dock icons with HyperDock. So why not have an option in Total Finder to remove the transfer window, and instead add a bubble above the Finder Dock icon that shows the same thing ? That’s something KDE do since long long time, and it works really well. It’s clutter free and redundant window free
Maybe the “bubble” idea is not the best way, it’s just a suggestion, but really I do think that something like this should be proposed for OSX, and I don’t see another tool than TotalFinder to do the job.
What do you think ?
