It looks like yet another Total Commander clone with limited 
functionality. A quick look, but I couldn't figure out how to type in a 
location. There doesn't appear to be a tree view either - less, for each 

But that's my point, really: why continue to clone TC, when there are so 
many additional functions out there on other tools that leave TC in the 
dust? If devs stick their heads in the sand and ignore developments then 
things will atrophy. In fact, in the domain of file mangers, I think 
they atrophied some time ago on Linux. And that's a shame.
