FarFinder: your Finder on the web

Mat Lu

FarFinder is a file sharing tool from the maker of Webjimbo (our coverage). Like the latter, FarFinder basically turns your Mac into a web server, but instead of serving up your notes from Yojimbo it instead serves up web pages that look like Finder windows. Using any web browser (Mac, PC, iPhone, etc.) you can easily download files from your home computer. And since dynamic IP addresses are a problem for many home users the service includes an optional stable URL through Flying Mac's servers.

While Back to My Mac and various VNC screen sharing options are available, FarFinder's promised straightforward ease of use both on the Mac server and on the other end in the browser definitely has a certain appeal.

FarFinder is $35 and a demo is available from Flying Mac.
