Before Leopard brought with it all its Finder enhancements, FinderPop was a reference in terms of extended Finder actions. The excellent utility has now been updated for Leopard and still remains top of the range.
What FinderPop does is extend what you can do with your Finder menus. You can quickly create a new item, display all the contents of a folder, handle processes or display all desktop items in a click. FinderPop fits discreetly in your menu bar and can be called up any time, either by clicking on the little icon or via keystroke. The application is highly customizable, and if you're planning on using it, I suggest digging a little in the settings to tune it to your liking. Not only can you change the appearance but you can also exclude items, choose what submenus to show in FinderPop or set the number of items that FinderPop remembers.
Most users will still be satisfied with all the extra features found in Leopard's new Finder. If you're a productivity buff though, you'll definitely enjoy FinderPop.
