Krusader is an advanced twin panel (commander style) file manager for KDE and other desktops in the *nix world, similar to Midnight or Total Commander. It provides all the file management features you could possibly want. Plus: extensive archive handling, mounted filesystem support, FTP, advanced search module, viewer/editor, directory synchronisation, file content comparisons, powerful batch renaming and much much more. It supports the following archive formats: tar, zip, bzip2, gzip, rar, ace, arj, lha and rpm and can handle other KIOSlaves such as smb:// or fish:// It is (almost) completely customizable, very user friendly, fast and looks great on your desktop. 'krusader' is even GNOME aware: if the KDE libraries are installed on a Gnome-running system, Krusader will work and integrate with the Gnome drag n' drop system.
