Default Folder X Enhances Support for Snow Leopard

Recently, a handy tool I often use received an upgrade to fully integrate with Mac OS X 10.6.1. Default Folder X enhances the file navigation process significantly, both during file saving and opening.

This tool has been a lifesaver, especially when I am engrossed in writing a new book and need to manage numerous files scattered across various folders on multiple drives.

The latest version not only supports the newer Mac OS but also brings enhancements for versions 10.4 and 10.5. Previously, I encountered some odd visual glitches in Snow Leopard, but these have been rectified in the current update.

Additionally, the update offers better performance with several applications like Final Cut Pro and QuickTime Player 7, particularly with file export functions using QuickTime.

The utility is available for a 30-day free trial. After the trial, it costs US $34.95, or $14.95 for those who purchased earlier versions before June 1, 2007.

While I’m thrilled with the updates, part of me wishes these features were inherently available in OS X.
