A picture named finder-view.gif
A quick tip for resource-editor-savvy Mac OS X users (perhaps you can do this with QuicKeys too?) who work the way I do. Edit the Finder's View menu so you can switch views from the keyboard. That way, you can work normally in icon view, but if you encounter a hierarchy of unorganized files that you want to go through quickly (MP3s, DocServer pages, the contents of an application package, etc.) you can quickly switch to column view to find what you want. I find it works really well.
