This app adds the functionality that should have been in windows explorer.

Its seamlessly integrates with no slowdown and I've never had a problem because of it.

I highly recommend this one

This is a true 'WOW". Add QT adress bar and spend 5 minutes to configure it and you'll end up with most of the best of added functionality other Windows Explorer replacements offer. I'm amazed at how much customization is being squeezed out of Windows Explorer. I now have a breadcrumb adressbar, gridlines in the main window, fully configurable tabs, a wonderfull subdir tool and more all within xp's own explorer. Oh, as a finishing touch, add foldersize 2.4 to top it off. Last but not least, Quizo is constantly developing his apps and he takes (feature) requests too! P.S other that the initial slowdown by foldersize's calculation, the QT has not slowed down explorer a bit. Stability is top too.

I don't know how I have lived without this. It is simply the best add-on one could have!

Hey - this thing is pretty cool. I hope they get it working with Windows 7 soon.

I would also like the ability to locate the controls for this ABOVE the address bar in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

It just doesn't look right to have the address bar Above the Button Bar, you know?

In fact, I wish these folks would expand the app so that it lets you customize all the dialogs and folders in the OS so that every time you open Windows Explorer or do a File Save or Save As, these options would all be right there by default. Saving configurations and layouts and such.

Very cool concept. Hope they keep improving it.

Lots of beta goodness minus the quirky funkiness of the shrinking search box. :P

Quizo...the toasty software developer. ;)

The perfect explorer replacement replacement! (I meant it that way!)

The performance improvement in this beta version is really noticeable, mainly in context menus & tab handling.

Crash when you jump from one tab to another if one of the folders is located 1 level deep or more in a removable device.
C:\data => X:\files\docs = crash
I reported this bug in the author's forum, not answer or fix till now.
Otherwise, yes, it's a little bit slow because of .NET.

After using an old build for a while (.06?) I recently upgraded to 1.2.13 and was deeply impressed by the improvements the author had made in the meantime. I prefer this little utility to full-on Explorer replacements like X2 and Totalcommander purely because of its tight integration into the existing Explorer.

QT TabBAr's added functionality is very welcome, and all without any noticeable reduction in speed on my Athlon XP 300+ system.

The author also has a companion utility to spruce up Explorer's Address bar too, giving it the 'breadcrumb' ability used in other OS' - using that with QT TabBar is *highly* recommended.

Very cool. Except I use freecommander's dual pane explorer. If explorer had a proper dual pane i would ceratainly install this. BUT, freecommander has way more power than explorer so kinda moot point.

Awesome! Can't live with out it. Quizo just keeps making this better. :D

You must have .NET 2.0 to use this, otherwise you can't even install it. If you have .NET and it's corrupted somehow, look for NET Framework Cleanup Tool, run it and re-install .NET.

i used to be a great fan of this, but due to a global windows error related to .NET programs not working (not until next restart), i was forced to get rid of it.. if we dont count that, it's still .NET based, which means slow.. i dont want to wait 3-5 seconds to start windows explorer
