|One Click Automation
Do you ever find yourself downloading, manipulating the files, then uploading over and over? Humans are not robots, but computers can be. So get the computer to do a bunch of tasks for you with a single mouse click.
Ever wish you can instruct a program to do tasks for you? Now you can. Integrate NetFinder in to your workflow using AppleScript.

Remove the need for sending passwords to your server, or for that matter even having to know your password.
View certificate information to give you peace of mind.

Easily view and edit information like permissions of remote items. Recursively change permissions of folders and their contents, get the size of a folder, and more.

Organize your clients' servers, logins etc in Address Book, and instantly see the available servers from NetFinder, then just select and connect. It's that easy.
Why remember a server name or IP address, when servers around you just "appear". Select and connect. Can it get any easier?
Simplicity of renaming, moving, copying, duplicating, deleting, labelling, commenting... in a way that is familiar to you.
Support for 3rd party Growl Notifications for better visual feedback.
|But wait there's more...
... much much more.
Other things to know:
- Super fast transfers. In fact it is possibly the fastest FTP client when transferring files to the server over a single connection. NetFinder 2.x users can expect up to a 40x speed increase on certain operations.
- Advanced mirroring/syncing support of remote and local files/folders.
NetFinder is the first to bring you a nice dynamically filterable self contained report which you can filter items in the report with a single click, while being able to send these reports to anyone else to view and print out.
- iWeb: NetFinder works perfectly well with iWeb too, for all your web publishing needs if you don't have a .mac account.
With an application that has an enormous number of features, there is insufficient space here to tell you about all of them. However, there is a more complete list of features you can read up on in the beginning of our comprehensive online documentation.

What is X-Assist?
X-Assist was created to assist in the much loved but missing features of OS 9 in OSX. Over time other helpful features have been added.
- Application Switcher Menu (top right corner of screen)
X-Assist has a similar implementation.
- Quick access to "Recent Applications".
X-Assist has no "limit".
- The ability to add personal hierarchies of items in an OS9-like "apple" menu.
X-Assist allows users to add any hierarchy into a "Shortcuts" submenu.
- An extensible "Control Strip" like plugin architecture.
X-Assist supports Objective-C (NSBundle) plugins.
They are easy to write, and examples "SetVolume" and "MP3 Player"
plugins are provided in this distribution.
- OS 9 window behavior - when you switch applications by clicking in a window,
all windows for that application are shown. This behavior has changed in OSX and can be a bit annoying.
X-Assist brings back the OS9 windowing functionality and also allows you to toggle between modes.
- Easy access to System Preferences (Control Panels).
Or•ta•be free you say. Well X-Assist is donation-ware, so you are not obligated to pay anything. However to motivate us in keeping it maintained, we would appreciate your donations.
