TotalFinder is an add-on which gets loaded into the Finder when you launch TotalFinder.app. It does not modify your Finder files on the disk. It only changes the current instance of Finder running in memory when you launch TotalFinder, which is itself a standalone application. When TotalFinder is running, by default the Finder's Dock icon is replaced with one that has a tab on it. This options keeps the original Finder icon instead. During long file operations, you can show a mini progress bar just below the Finder's dock icon with this option enabled. TotalFinder makes it really easy to capture a variety of path formats for a selected object. Right-click on any file or folder, select Copy Path, and select the path format you'd like copied to the clipboard. Although you can always use the keyboard shortcuts to cut, copy, or paste an object with TotalFinder installed, this menu option offers a button for each edit operation in the contextual menu. Instead of opening into its own window, new tabs will open among the tabs of the last active window.
