CS2 and Bridge

If you are using Photoshop CS2, do you also use Bridge? Why/why not?

I have found Bridge to be a resource hog - slow, clunky and buggy. It's disappointing how much memory it eats up, which I'd rather have available for image editing, so I usually avoid it. It's certainly not compelling enough to go out and buy another gig of RAM. Adobe: gimme back the good ol' file browser, please!

Like Kurt said.... (exactly!)

I just use File>Open and select the miniature view - never had much need for anything else.

I use Bridge but agree that it is a huge memory hog. It is also slow and it minimizes after opening each picture. The only thing I really like about it is being able to view a slideshow of all pictures. Other than that one thing, I much preferred the CS1 browser.

I use the thumbnails view in Windows Explorer. That's all the functionality I need usually. When I want more, I use IrfanView Thumbnails or XnView. Besides, Bridge is slow as molasses in winter.

Ditto on it being a memory hog...I have a lot of memory and it is still slow and frustrating.

That piece of software is such a hog on ressources that I simply do not use it. I greatly preferred the File Browser that shipped with Photoshop CS.
