Dolphin is a file manager for KDE focusing on usability. The KDE 3 version of Dolphin is in beta stage, but provides already most features for daily usage. Currently Dolphin gets ported for KDE 4.0. I really liked its simplicity.
The main features of Dolphin are:
* Navigation bar for URLs, which allows to navigate quickly through the file hierarchy.
* View properties are remembered for each folder.
* Split of views is supported.
* Network transparency.
* Undo/redo functionality.
* Renaming of a variable number of selected items in one step and much more
Debian / Ubuntu Linux user, type:
$ sudo apt-get install dolphin
To start dolphin start KDE or type:
$ dolphin &
From the man page:
dolphin is not intended to be a competitor to Konqueror, the default KDE file manager: Konqueror acts as universal viewer being able to show HTML pages, text documents, directories and a lot more, whereas dolphin focuses on being only a file manager. This approach allows to optimize the user interface for the task of file management.
