What are the pros of using Path Finder, and not Finder?

Could I not get some of the features of Path Finder by adding Applescript scripts to the stock Finder?

Please rephrase the question so that it is not subjective. Asking "which is better" type questions with no specifics will get them closed quickly. –  MDMarra Jun 21 '10 at 1:12
    
You changed the words with your edit, but not the intent. I think you should read the FAQ to get a better understanding of what is an acceptable question. superuser.com/faq –  MDMarra Jun 21 '10 at 2:18
    
Thanks for pointing out that. I think that the question is not subjective, now. –  kiamlaluno Jun 21 '10 at 2:18

@quack quixote: I apologize; English is not my first language, and sometimes I don't find the words to express a simple concept. Thanks for making my question clearer. –  kiamlaluno Jun 21 '10 at 3:51

Many of the changes in Path Finder cannot be replicated by Applescript scripts because the interface has been fundamentally enhanced. Things like the drop stack, window tabs, dual-pane browsing, integrated terminal, and so forth, cannot just be tacked onto the Finder.
