Using Win 7, one has no choice but to use a 3rd party Explorer, and I've used all of them. Some are feature packed but coarse and clunky, others are elegant and intuitive, but a little sparse on features. Nomad.Net and CubicExplorer fall into the latter group. I really like both, but both have shortcomings that can't be overlooked. Cubic does not have an X64 version. Nomad.Net writes a bunch of junk files to your user folders. Their large icon set looks fuzzy, and they forgot to include an "UP" icon. You can't lock the tabs, or easily get to your favorites. There's no way to export a config file or "save state". Ugh. On balance, not bad. My favorite thing about Nomad.Net is, it's in current development. My least favorite thing is, it's not portable. Give it a shaky 4.

We all agree that TC is the king so I'll review this keeping this in mind.

I've found Nomad quite nice and easy to use. The interface is better than the one TC offers - just give it a try an you'll see what I mean, but basically has exactly the same functionality, speed, plugin support, etc, apart from the FTP bookmark which I found is better organized in Total Commander.

There is no 64bit version (yet) - not like is a real issue here and a small delay at startup which I presume is because of .Net.

Why one use it? Well, I am using it because is completely Free as opposed with TC which is not.

Used this proggie for a long while, then newer versions installed non-functional. This current version installed and functions on 64-bit WinVista.

Seems to have all the features one would want for an app of this kind.

Have used this for a while, and is a very good file explorer. Does what I need it to do as far as working with files.

Surprisingly nice, feature-wise, and pleasant-looking. But still not in the same league as Total Commander. However, it's being improved at a fast rate, so I'll keep an eye on it.
Besides, it's completely free

To the developer(s): Good job, keep it up

This is a much better release than the one I last reviewed. There are many really good features and a few bugs - I can't get it to start up with the last workspace layout, but no big deal. I hope it continues to improve.

Better than freecommander imo. BUT.
Crashed when tried to open shell folders dialog and when I changed font view, system folders were displayed only with icon and I was given access denied bs.
Almost a useable explorer replacement. I'll stick with TC for now.
BTW, if you want to help fix this post your details on dev's site and not here retard

Very good file manager. It doesn't contain such annoying functionality as media player, clock panel and so on, what other file managers contain. But it has all necessary functionality for comfort and quick files browsing. A lot of very useful features: file tooltips with previews for mostly using file types, configurable for specific folder columns, folder bookmarks, different types of folder's view. And - sure - File Find. That's, from my point of view, one of the best functional places in an application, really amazing and extremely useful! By no means, all operations could be done without using a mouse, just with a key shortcuts. But from my point of view it still needs some additions. First of all, tabs. Just two-panes interface is not enough already, especially when you work with two-three FTP servers simultaneously. It will be very good to have a possibility not just to open archives but also to create them. And finally (a "blue dream"), it will be really the best file manager when developer adds at least text files viewing and editing, even with such simple functions as notepad has. But anyway, one of the best file managers I've seen. My mark is 5-, but as tabs are in an extremely close future I set 5 instead of 4.

Fairly good file manager. Interface is smooth with a reasonable amount of features. The file Find is excellent. Still lacking in some features such as Tabs (rather than the 1990's dual pane view). There are many configuration options. Turning on the folder tree (or "folder bar") is a must, as is turning off the auto sized columns and selecting Delayed Extract Icons to increase the speed. Needs some features that other freeware explorers have (see FreeCommander - which has good features, but its own set of issues).
