Review: Add Chrome-like tabs to Windows Explorer with Clover

Enhance your IE by seamlessly adding Chrome-like tabs for easy navigation.

Clover adds browser-like tabs to Windows Explorer smoothly, effectively, and seamlessly. It will make you wonder why no one has thought of this before! If you ever have more than one Explorer window open, you'll want to add this download to make multitasking easier.

The program installs quickly and doesn't require you to always have it on to get tabs. Clover is expandable through themes, but you have to download those separately. A built-in themes store would be a welcome addition to the app. The app does let you put your most-used folders in a bookmark bar, which makes navigation so much smoother. There are no changes to the right-click menu, so you'll have to manually open a tab and navigate to the folder each time you want a new folder. Surprisingly, the program isn't a RAM hog, even if you have multiple tabs open at once.

This program kind of sucks you in on principle alone. Thankfully, Clover lives up its promise and gives you a neat, easy way to browse your folders, just like you would the Web. If you're constantly multitasking and searching for the window you want, this is a download you need.
