The Finder’s Lame Path Display in Search Results

When you perform a Spotlight search in the Tiger Finder, at the bottom of the results is a small one-line display of the path to the selected item in the results list. This path display stinks — it’s utterly inadequate for displaying paths more than a few levels deep, because it never grows to more than one line. So you end up with a bunch of unlabeled folder icons next to each other. Nicholas Riley skewers this design on his weblog.
