If you look at the history of software development (during the years of widespread distribution of PCs), you can distinguish several dozen utilities that are used by almost every Windows-PC owner. If we talk about file managers, then this is, first of all, Total Commander, an analog of which for macOS we will consider in today’s review.
Download Crax Commander (Mac App Store)
So, Crax Commander. The application meets the user with a classic two-panel interface. The advantages of this structure are obvious – in the first place, it is convenient when copying or transferring data from one directory to another. Crax Commander supports Drag’n’Drop operations, is able to copy and move files in the background.
Navigation and application management are organized quite competently, no questions arise, but with prolonged and frequent use, the interface can be finely tuned for you. In particular, you can change fonts, background color, hide, resize and swap toolbar elements, etc.
In addition, you can reconfigure the hot keys for more comfortable working with the file manager.
If we talk about practical functions, they are pretty standards and satisfy the requirements of the average user. In addition to the operations of copying and transferring files, this is work (viewing, selective unpacking, deletion) with archives (ZIP, RAR, 7-ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2, AR), connection to remote data storages via the SSH, SFTP, FTP, SMB protocols, AFP, a native function for creating and storing passwords, a built-in text editor with the option of checking syntax, etc.
You can download Crax Commander from the Mac App Store on any Mac with OS X Lion or newer.
