ROX-Filer

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 08, 2007 09:50 AM
ROX Filer is the daddy of filers.

Hit '`' to get a shell at the current location.
Hit '/' to navigate by keyboard with tab completion.
Hit '!' to run a shell command.

Shift click opens files as text.
Middle click on directories opens in a new window.
Middle click on the 'Home' and 'Up' buttons also opens in a new window.
You can drag files to the 'Up' and 'Home' buttons, and it behaves as you would expect.

Awesome.

I'd use it just for the '`' key binding.
