UniversalBinaryNights has just released an update to its powerful enhancement to the Finder, ForkLift 1.7 is now available.

ForkLift 1.7 adds a number of new features including folder synchronization, merge folders, able to compress files, able to initiate multi-threated FXP transfers between FTP servers, and more.


    New Features:
  • Folder Synchronization

  • Duplicate file command
  • Global preferences for conflict management

Perhaps ForkLift is not that well known, and perhaps it only first released in May 2007. ForkLift is a powerful replacement for Finder, while maintaining the beautiful OS X feel. ForkLift is also a great FTP client. Mac OS X Leopard has improved the Finder with a number of features such as QuickLook, ForkLift simply enhances Leopard and added a number of missing features in Finder.

ForkLift is a free upgrade for previous registered users. A new copy of this powerful tool costs $44.95 USD.
