It is a next generation file manager. Very quick with a load of attention-grabbing options. It is written in C# & .NET 3.5. are ported to UNIX operating system and os x once one.0 release. It designed & written by Mieszko Lassota.

It’s a beta version however already it are often compared to different file managers. If you’re a software engineer or a PC geek – you may love it!

How it Works:      

Just begin typing and proto can try and notice similar objects supported their name. The main idea is to own a file manager quick & mouse freelance (some mouse support exists and in future it’ll be extended) supported shortcuts, one thing like Emacs/Vim – it’s exhausting if you do not apprehend the shortcuts, however if you will manage to learn them you will have a really powerful and quick tool. There has already been started work to introduce a replacement menu interface that may facilitate those who don’t want to learn shortcuts – it’ll facilitate them.
