Accessing SSHFS within finder

I usually need to access remote systems using SSHFS and SFTP from my Mac. Unfortunately OSX Finder does not support this by default. To make my life a little easier I used MacFUSE and created a shell script to mount the relevant file system:

sshfs ~/Desktop/ \

However, this can be a little frustrating so I was very happy when a friend introduced me to MacFusion - a GUI based client for mounting SSHFS volumes. Try it!
