When Quick Look was first introduced as a Leopard feature, I was pretty impressed, I’ll admit. But the feature needed a little help. When I selected a folder, and hit the space bar, I got the same info I could see via Get Info (Cmd-I). Same goes for source code files, and zip archives.
I have good news, my friends. Three wonderful (free!) Quick Look plugins later, this feature becomes indispensable. Download, install, and get hooked on hitting your space bar again.
BetterZip Quick Look Generator – Don’t get confused: the “buy” links are for the full-featured BetterZip app. The QL plugin is free.
Folder – Don’t worry when half the page is in Japanese. You’re at the right place.
QLColorCode - This one saves me hours of opening and closing. A must-have for any software developer. A should-have for everybody else.
I keep my Quick Look plugins in ~/Library/QuickLook, in case I find any weird bugs with them. Enjoy!
