This should prove VERY useful. I'll be beta testing this, this weekend when I get my new RAZER PRO mouse hooked up. :D

I couldn't live without FinderPop in Mac OS 9. Really loved having all my important apps available in hierarchical menus at my disposal with a right-click or control-click from anywhere.

I've moved on and found other shortcuts, though. Still, I'll give the old FinderPop another try just for nostalgia's sake and to see if it fits my evolved way of working.

That is the first review I have never read that doesn't actually say what the app actually DOES! :eek: Bah! Small details. :rolleyes:

It was this cool little app that put a wealth of contextual menus and/or customizations when you clicked on something, like basically the "pop" part you could say is for "pop-up," i.e. a menu. I used to love it back when I thought one button mice made sense and it did have some good things, like if there was something you'd frequently launched from a document and/or app that may have been easier with a menu click. Still anyone who realizes how much more productive a second mouse button can be and/or found new ways may have lost their shine for FinderPop. None-the-less FinderPop can be a very helpful little utility.
