Review: Manage files with muCommander for Mac

Manage your files with lightweight file manager, muCommander for Mac.

Managing a large volume of files and folders is definitely a headache for most users. Feature-packed muCommander for Mac offers a great tool for anyone looking for an advanced file manager. This application performs well and offers a high level of customization.

The installation of muCommander for Mac literally takes seconds as all you need to do is drag the application into your Applications folder. The installation does require you to have the latest Java Runtime Environment, so if you don't have it you will be automatically taken to java.com to download it. Upon startup you can customize your file manager by selecting the preferred theme and look and feel. muCommander offers a pretty straightforward file manager layout with a dual-pane interface and intuitive icons. The file manager supports FTP, HDFS, HTTP, NFS, S3, SFTP, and SMB. There are some additional options, too, such as to open multiple tabs for easier navigation, to quickly add and edit bookmarks, and to modify zip files without having to recompress the whole archive, which we found very convenient. Under Help there is a list of all possible keyboard shortcuts as well as a link to Online Documentation where you can find FAQ and Customization sections. This application is really feature-packed, and it's geared toward the more experienced user.

muCommander for Mac offers a very useful and powerful file manager. Advanced users will love the level of customization and the amount of features offered completely free of charge, but beginners may find the options overwhelming.
