    No substitutes, but there are overlays, utilities, and apps (as mentioned ^^^) to work with Finder.

    Xfile

    It includes sister utilities for things like search and stream editing and other neckbeardy things. I presume that if you're looking to replace the Finder that's what you're looking for though ;)

    path finder

    There's a shareware app called 'Path Finder' by cocoatech that is similar to the finder but has more features like tabbed windows, batch delete/copy; it can even replace the finders desktop with its own. However making it the default finder is the hard bit because Apples finder can't be removed (easily :D). I use Apples finder since i don't do a lot of file browsing.

    Of or pertaining to the sorts of people who might grow neckbeards(Look it up on Wikipedia if you need a photo).

    It's usually used in reference to hardcore computer scientist types, often UNIX users. They types of people who are angry they can't see the inodes of their files in their file manager, in other words :p

    Thanks! As I usually do, I did look it up in Wikipedia first, but didn't find anything. That's why I asked.
