Just so there's at least one con: Path Finder has a single pair of "go back" and "go forward" buttons in the top left corner, even in two-pane mode. The buttons act on whichever pane is active -- which really, really often isn't the one I think it is. The only thing I preferred about TotalFinder over Path Finder was having a separate pair of buttons for each pane. See More
It used to work fine, but the latest version 7.6.2 is crashing almost all the time. See More
Path Finder can be configured to automatically open and edit word documents, text, and image files. It also has an integrated terminal, hex editor, can archive type files, and can handle file network protocols, such as ftp and afp. See More
Solid project, beautiful native app. Limitations are limitations of MacOS itself. See More
Joseph Murphy's Experience
Midnight commander uses the full screen of the terminal in a very efficient way. It displays two panels for files horizontally. On the bottom it has the most useful commands with their corresponding key attached. All of this makes for a very intuitive interface both for beginners and experienced users. See More
Midnight commander is easy and intuitive to use. The most common commands are displayed in the bottom (move, copy, paste, delete, edit, view, make directory). Files can be selected with the arrow keys which move the cursor through them. The Enter key goes down in a directory. To move the focus between two panels the tab key is used. See More
It may be the closest thing to Total Commander but it is definitely not compatible with Mac OS Mojave. It shuts down automatically after running for a while. It does not store / save last changed prefs. You cannot fully maximize it. Needs a complete overhaul for it to become usable. See More
This tool doesn't work on recent macOS versions, except if you try a workaraound that may or may not work. It involves disabling System Integrity Protection and details on how to do it can be found on the XtraFinder website. See More
Clashes with established file handling known from most other file managers. Very little configuration options to fix weird behavior. Integrates some weak features for file handling, that make it hard to replace with more powerful external tools. Bad for overview and navigation in actual folder structure, because some of it is hidden and the view differs from all file open/save dialogues. See More
Great file manager but I can't hide the second panel, sometimes it is necessary. See More
Commander One for macOS is pretty much what Total Commander for Windows is. See More
