File Manager Roundup

Postby doctorflange » Wed Aug 31, 2005 10:39 am

Couldn't agree more with the outcome of this roundup. Back in my RedHat/Fedora days, I used to use Nautilus for file management and Epiphany or FireFox for browsing.

However, since moving over to Mandrake about a year ago (and switching to KDE), I use Konqueror for both. I find that there aren't many sites that Konqueror can't handle these days - it's come on leaps and bounds in recent years. I's so versatile. And tabbed file management. You get so used to it. I've played with the beta of Vista but I still don't like Windows Explorer anything like as much as Konqueror.

It really has Konquered my desktop!

I agree completely. Konqueror is wonderful. Having a webdav server open on one tab and a local directory on anothr is very handy.

After using Konqueror, I find Windows Explorer very frustrating
