I'm looking for a replacement for Finder on OS X. The replacement program should:

  • have 2 panes, to make copying/moving files easy
  • support bookmarking
  • support drag and drop
  • be free ($0)

I've tried muCommander, but find the UI a bit clunky, e.g. you can't move one folder into another using drag and drop. Something like xplorer2 (windows only) would be perfect.

I don't know about bookmarking though... There doesn't seem to be much choice. :-/ –  Tom Wijsman Mar 11 '11 at 13:19

I think PathFinder will suit your needs: http://www.cocoatech.com/

He wants freeware only. –  Daniel Beck Mar 11 '11 at 11:51
Sorry, thought it was freeware :) –  Temikus Mar 13 '11 at 10:24
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  KronoS Jul 13 '12 at 14:06

I don't know of a free product but if inexpensive is close enough, I can recommend TotalFinder for tabbed interface, toggle-able dual-pane interface, and drag-and-drop features. (I personally find toggling hidden files on and off to be a must have feature, as well). No bookmarking, though.
