Great tool, I was waiting for a thing like this!
I have a few bugs/improvements I would like to report, to make the tool even better. Where can I do this?

Keep up the good work, guys!

Is there any way to untabify this thing? And possibly rearrange the toolbar/adressbar, or possibly get rid of the search box until a hotkey is hit?

Thanks for all the hard work that went into this, its very much appreciated.

Q: Is this app an alternative for the Windows' Explorer?


A: Yes, yes it is. It has most functions you typically use in Explorer and perhaps some others it doesn't.
