InformINIT's web site is a MacWorld Best Mac Web Site.

If you've ever wondered what all of those control panels, extensions, and
other System-related files in your System Folder are for, InformINIT is
for you!

InformINIT is an application which provides information on a
mind-boggling number of System Folder files: control panels, extensions,
system folder contents, and more -- from both Apple and third-party
developers. Information includes file descriptions, who needs what,
version numbers, RAM consumption, and helpful tips (even a few
"secrets"). Where appropriate, files are organized into "groups" that are
mainly used together. Live URLs to information sources on the Web are
provided for files that require extensive discussion.

But InformINIT is not just "INITs" -- it contains sections on installing
the latest system software, files which don't take up system RAM, items
found loose in the System Folder, startup file management utilities,
PRAM, and the Modern Memory Manager. It also contains a primer on System
software for beginners, and a thorough discussion of the new HFS Plus
file format by Eric Belsley of the Mac Resource Page. It also provides
links to some of the best Mac info sites on the Web.There have been many
imitations of, and efforts similar to, InformINIT, but it remains THE
reference for System Folder information. Even Apple's own technical
support staff uses it and recommends it to customers!

InformINIT 8.1 is current through Mac OS 8.1.

System requirements: InformINIT will run on all Mac OS computers except
for those with 68000 processors. It requires 1.5 MB of free RAM, and less
than 1MB of hard drive space.
