too unstable for everyday use..

most of the basic commands that is needed gets a system error.

Very nice!

I like:
- the tabs
- intuitive to use for a Firefox user
- it doesn't store preferences in the registry but in a file in it's own directory (ideal for my USB memory stick)
- file splitter/joiner [just need to actually implement it now! ;) ]

don't like:
- tabs don't close in displayed order, when pressing CTRL+F4
- no right-click menu options on the tabs
- whole app freezes when polling network information in one of the tabs
- blue/classic themes are wrongly labelled
- unable to open Windows shortcuts
- keep getting some "not a valid integer value" error when clicking on files larger than 1MB.

Shows great promise, but needs loads of work done on before I would consider it useable - hence a neutral rating.

Hi bobad,

I have created a file called FSViewer2.27 b3.exe, and no problems found.

Are you using the latest 0.40.109 alpha version?

Regards.

Buggy right now, but hey, it's alpha! Gets an integer error on a file named "FSViewer2.27 b3.exe"

Nice though. I like the single file program (portable). I REALLY like the future implementation of thumbnails. :)

i've never bothered with a file manager before but have now tried this one, plus those mentioned below.. i like them all.. this one is completely freeware though, so it gets my vote at the moment, since i use stuff like this more at work than at home..

Overall, not bad. Still a bit buggy, but that goes with the territory at BetaNews, so I accept that. Xplorer: confusing name, though. At first I thought it was an update for Xplorer2 Lite, the freeware excellent file manager. Now, Xplorer2 Lite beats the pants of this one.

If you want the great, easy-to-use Xplorer2, then go here:

NOTE: this page is for the freeware vers; the downloadable shareware version has lots more features.

Finally, my personal fave file manager is Tracker3, just recently updated. Get it here:

Note: I am hesitant in using one review/critique to post links for other alternatives, but I am doing so in the hopes of assisting others looking for decent alternatives [freeware, in the case] for the unbelievably clunky Micro$oft Explorer.

AFAIK Firefox is not a Windows Explorer substitute, but an Internet Explorer replacement instead. They are different products.

Isn't there enough explore hacks, that add these features, plus the fact firefox is so much better?

It's got problems, but it shows promise. Small and fast like a file browser should be.

rkmoray, there is a paste function, you just need to copy something first and then it will appear in the menu.

I agree with tre2004.

A - Chronology is :
1- Software xplorer²
2- Software XPlorer

B - Facts are :
XPlorer IS NOT xplorer²

C - Question is :
Why the same common 7/8 common root for the name?

D - Proposition is :
XPlorHer as a continuum ;)

Not a bad application for a free bit of software.
Yes, there is does appear to be a problem with the site bouning back to the main provider home page.
I got some errors when trying to do a multi-select.
