FileXaminer is the premier "Get Info" utility for Mac OS X. Get Info is a file/folder attribute editing application that is easier to use and more powerful than competing products. Since the first release, the developer has taken the time to simplify and refine the Get Info User Interface.

They looked at what you would need to use Get Info for and came up with things like batch mode, Privilege Presets, Type/Creator favorites, dock menu support, and our extensive Finder Hot Key support. All these features allow you to get your work done faster.
