MacFUSE (Tuxtera) 2.2.1

Utility that makes it very simple to mount various file systems on a Mac, previously inaccessible because they haven't been designed to work with OS X

Moreover, the MacFUSE software solution has been implemented as an easy to use tool designed to make it as easy as possible to open and write from and to all sorts 3rd party file systems that your Mac wasn't capable of working with before.

MacFUSE can also be seen as a separate layer between the OS X kernel and its interface that allows users to access file systems that haven't been designed to be compatible with Macs.

Thus, MacFUSE can be used to mount files with complex structures within the's interface, in order to make it easier to browse and modify their contents via a simple and intuitive interface.

If you need further details on how it works, there is a list of the most frequently asked questions on MacFUSE's wiki.

Furthermore, one can also go to the HOWTO Install MacFUSE page to get a detailed list of the steps needed for installing it from scratch on a Mac OS X system.
