Has anyone here tried XtraFinder? I know posting this on BinaryAge's forums is probably frowned upon, but with all of the talk of Pathfinder (unusable coming from TF as far as I am concerned), I figure this is probably a better recommendation. I just found via Googling "Finder replacements OS X" and came across a NetTuts+ Tutorial.
I have installed it, and while it's not a TF replacement exactly, it does have many of the most beloved and relied upon features, such as a hotkey for sliding the visor up from the bottom (be careful, they call it "Pinnable Windows" which sounds like TF's Pinned Window, which is a totally different thing. It took a while to figure out that it was referring to the slide-up visor feature. It's also got a lot of other TF features, but some of them are simply not working for me, such as "Folders on Top". Nonetheless, it at least works in 10.11 as opposed to simply crashing/not launching a la TF right now.
But this gives me hope. If a lone developer can get so many of these features to work, I wonder if BinaryAge can't refactor TF to fly under the radar and give us most of the functionality we have come to rely on?
