Dolphin is a file manager focusing on usability. You can browse, locate, open, copy and move files with it.
It is the default file manager for the current version of KDE (KDE 4), and can be optionally installed on KDE 3. Dolphin is not intended to compete directly with Konqueror, the previous default KDE web browser. Konqueror acts as universal viewer being able to show HTML pages, text documents, directories and a lot more, whereas Dolphin focuses on being solely a highly optimized file manager.
This approach allows the software to optimize the user interface for the task of file management.
- Supports dockable panels for places, information, folders and a terminal.
- Breadcrumb Navigation bar for URLs which allows users to navigate quickly through the file hierarchy.
- 3 view modes (icon, list and column) with properties remembered for each folder.
- Split views designed for file copy- and move-operations.
- Network transparency.
- Undo/redo functionality.
- Support of service menus.
- Zoom from 16 x 16 pixels to 256 x 256 pixels.
- Tooltips show previews.
- Panel tabs.
- Renaming of a variable number of selected items in one step.
- Supports: SMB/CIFS, WebDAV, NFS, FTP, and SSH.
- Networked Environment for Personalized, Ontology-based Management of Unified Knowledge (NEPOMUK) integration.
