FolderGlance: Mac OS X Contextual Menu plugin allows for hierarchical folder browsing

FolderGlance is a Contextual Menu Items plugin for the Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger’s Finder, which allows you to hierarchically browse the contents of folders in the Finder by right- or control-clicking one or several folders. It comes with a preference panel allowing you to customize the number of levels you can browse, as well as enable or disable display of hidden files.

FolderGlance is donationware, which means that it is basically free. However, for those who can afford it, donations are greatly appreciated.

  1. Whoops – it’s 10.4, right?

    Should we be making sure our shameless plugs were factually accurate, so as to avoid reducing consumer confidence in the product?

    Thought I’d ask… ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Its compatiable with both Panther and Tiger. I got it and installed, on the software site it mentions one needs Desktop Transporter as a requirement. I have panther and quite a few other contextual menus and since installing it I haven’t as yet seen anything new in my Contextual Menus. So do I need to install Desktop Transporter as well ?

  3. Sweet. Maybe they can also put together a plug-in that lets me move a file upward in a folder hierarchy without having to switch to Finder’s column view. Or maybe just a plug-in that let’s me Command-X (cut) a file and Command-V (paste) it in another location. That would be grand.

  4. With little tricks like <a href =””>this (click)</a> aren’t you glad Apple placed some safeguards in?
