    Anyone know if there is an application that can easily browse windows/samba shares? Finder works okay, but I find it annoying that I have to mount everything in order to get to it. One thing I miss in Windows is being able to type \\hostname somewhere and getting to the share.

    Now I have to open finder, open the network dialog box, type in the hostname and wait for it to connect. It'd be great if there was another application that would allow me to quickly browse to all these shares.

    You shouldn't have to open finder, but with Finder active (the app showing in the menu bar) you chould be able to use Command (apple)+K to open the dialogue to enter the ip of the SMB share and browse it that way.
