PCMan File Manager

PCMan File Manager

PCMan File Manager is a file manager with a tabbed interface.

The goal of this application is to be slim and useful, but not to have any feature bloat. It is meant to be a replacement for Nautilus, Konqueror and Thunar.

It can be modified to take the appearance of Microsoft Windows, helping beginners migrate from Windows to Linux.

The author has recently announced that PCMan File Manager will undergo a total redesign, but will not lose sight of the software's basic objective of minimising memory usage.
