Cocoatech has announced Path Finder 6.0 for OS X, an update to their file browser and management application. It requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher.

Built around a modular interface with six different customizable views, Path Finder maintains all the conventions of the OS X Finder, but allows the user to select both the layout and the amount of information displayed. The app allows developers, writers, artists, and casual users to manage their files according to their own tastes, special needs, and workflows, according to the folks at Cocoatech.

Permitting thousands of different combinations, the Path Finder main window can be configured to display a maximum of five modules for browsing and managing files. There are more than 20 different modules in three different categories, which allow users to customize the kinds of file information they’d like to have displayed. In addition, users can configure custom toolbars, contextual menus, and keyboard shortcuts.

Path Finder 6.0 is available directly from the Cocoatech website ( for US$40. A free, fully functional, 30-day trial version is also available for download. Owners of Path Finder 5.0 may upgrade for $20.
