FolderGlance allows you to control- or right-click folders in the Finder to see and open their contents directly from the Finder's contextual menu, as well as examine the contents of sub-folders down an unlimited number of levels. FolderGlance also lets you add your own custom folders to the contextual menu, enabling FolderGlance to act as a very versatile launcher. You can move, copy and make aliases of the currently selected files in a folder you browse to. FolderGlance also enables you to preview arbitrary files by simply letting the cursor hover over an item in the contextual menu. Additional features include control-free popus, a custom Open With menu, changeable font size for the Finder's contextual menu, customizable sorting and the ability to browse into package contents.
What is new in this release:
- FolderGlance now comes as a standard Mac OS X installer package. The default install location has been changed to work properly with Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan. Using FolderGlance on El Capitan requires that System Integrity Protection is disabled.
- Graphics are finally good to go on retina display-equipped Macs, and have gotten a minor makeover.
- FolderGlance no longer relies on login items for launching its helper apps, but instead uses launchd to handle this task.
- FolderGlance is now installed in such a way that it is available for all users of the computer.
What is new in version 3.0.5:
FolderGlance is now able to resolve aliases on Mac OS X Yosemite. Alias handling on older Mac OS X releases has also been improved.
The full version enables digging into an unlimited number of sub-folders and removes the purchase reminders.
