After using this beast it is no longer a problem for me. Basically makes your finder behave like Chrome with tabs and what not. http://totalfinder.binaryage.com/
+1. Did a fresh install for ML and forgot how gimped standard finder is. Total Finder rocks.
Other crap that goes right back on after a reinstall.
Paragon NTFS for Mac - Yea let me write to my NTFS drives with zero problems please
Boom - Volume booster beyond standard max volume. Only use it when I need it eg. Low volume youtube vids when using laptop
Moom - More window placement options when you hover over the maximise +, like snapping to the left / right / top / bottom / full maximise (like windows)
Caffeine - Quick menubar option to stop your display sleeping
Skip Tunes - iTunes control from menubar
Alfred - Spotlight on steroids
CoRD - Remote Desktop
CleanMyDrive - Lists all mounted volumes from menubar pulldown, easy eject for one, or all, clean up crap on usb's etc before eject
iStat Menus, Temp, CPU usage etc on menubar. I use mine on combined mode with only CPU temp and the rest on drop down.
Dropbox - Cloud Storage
VLC / MplayerX - Media players
Text Wrangler - Far better text editor than Textedit
