The Best Alternative File Browser for Linux

Filed under
Software

Linux is rife with awesome file browsers, so if you don't like the one that came with your distro, you have a lot of choices. Our favorite is the insanely feature-filled Krusader for KDE.

The file browser category is a bit different for Linux than it is for other systems. While every distro and desktop environment has a "default" file browser, using the term "alternative file browsers" is difficult. Really, you just have a lot of file browsers to choose from, and everyone can end up with a different "default". Our favorite is Krusader, which is truly "alternative" in the sense that very few distros use it as their default, but what's best for you can vary so much by what you need and what desktop environment you use, that we highly recommend looking through the Competition section below and deciding for yourself. That said, if it's raw power you want, Krusader is your man. Here's why.
