This is a must-try for anybody who is used to vi-type of software. After a couple of days of fiddling around, this became my default file manager. Also, the developers seems to be closely monitoring internet forums and provide feedback. Thanks for a great piece of software.
Easy to use, low on resources and with excellent manual.
Delightful for vim users! Easy to use, light, just what you need for easy and fast browsing of files. Great replacement for GNU Midnight Commander.
