Etcher is a Mac program designed to help you burn disk images and archive files to your SD cards or USB drives. The utility is packed with a user-friendly interface, supports drag-and-drop actions, work with a wide range of file formats, and is open source.

All you need to do in order to work with this tool is to import your disk image, select the connected SD card or USB drive from the given list, and click the "Flash!" button. The program will then burn the image file to the selected external storage device, without slowing down the performance of your system.

This new version of the program brings you many new features, improvements, and bug fixes. For example, the developers fixed the issue that occurred when importing ZIP files, removed duplicate debug enabling in the USBboot module, add the progress and status to the window title, and so much more.

In my testing, it worked flawlessly offering the results I needed within moments.

So, I can't find a single bad thing to say about Etcher. It does exactly what's being said on the homepage of the developer, brings you easy-to-configure settings, and comes without a price. You should definitely give it a try if you ever need to burn images to SD cards or USB drives.
