Viewing folders within Quick Look!

A great tip submitted by Nessuno: Viewing folders within Quick Look! A really cool plugin changes the behavior of Quick Look. The way it works in the retail version of Leopard is it only displays basic info about the folder. With the plugin installed, you will get the same info, but you will also be able to see what is in the folder. Here is the difference:

You can get more info and download the plugin here (link to Flickr because the developer's site is not in English). Thanks for the tip Nessuno!

I had this installed, but I removed it again, what's the point, you could just open the folder to see what's inside...

@brecht - I might agree with you except that you can buy a packet of TimTams (or Oreos for you in the USA) and stare at them or rip it open and taste the flavour of the content, hear the crunch and lick your fingers after! Just looking, just isn't a fun. PLUS you save time and all we have is time.

Same site also has a plugin that shows the contents of zip and rar files in the same way without having to unzip/unrar to find out, been happily using both for a while now and whilst they're not everyday useful, they are very handy when I do use them.

@Monkeywiz: We know, see my tip 2 days ago ;)
@zevie: very strange. Have you tried to reboot (or logout out and log back in)?

It doesn't show folder- or filesize. Is this enablable somehow?
