A Better Finder Select 3.0

A Better Finder Select is a contextual menu plugin for the Macintosh Finder that allows power users to filter file selections based on a range of criteria.

The simplest selection method is through partial file name matches, e.g. "select all files which end in '.gif'", or "select all files which contain the word 'web'". Unix-style wildcard matches such as "image*.gif" provide a more powerful alternative, but it is the regular expression matching, familiar to BBEdit , Grep or Perl users that provide the ultimate file selection mechanism.

If all this sounds a bit complicated to you, don't worry. A Better Finder Select features a simple and intuitive user interface. Simply download it and give it a try! You soon won't want to live without it!

A Better Finder Select is the ideal companion for "A Better Finder Rename", which allows users to rename multiple files quickly and effectively. In the same tool series, "A Better Finder Creators & Types" allows you to redefine file-to-application associations by setting the file's creator and type codes.

Complete rewrite for Mac OS X.
