CubicExplorer Comments

Alternative as an image viewer

Positive Comment by reiaasu
about CubicExplorer and Geeqie Image Viewer, ACDSee, XnView Sep 2015

I know that it is primarily a file manager. But its user interface can be configured in such a way that it looks very similar to how I configure ACDSee Classic, Cornice, GQview, Geeqie and XnView. I like image viewers with a panel for folder tree and/or file list, and another panel with image preview. And Windows lacks good open source image viewers with such user interface, so here's my suggestion.

Solid Replacment

about CubicExplorer Oct 2014

This is a solid and very useful explore replacement.
I started using it a month ago and have completely fallen in love with it.
Though I do wish there was real plug-in support, or it was made with open source of free compiling tools in mind so that I could roll my own version of it.

...almost there!

Great explorer replacement. It would be killer if there was the ability to show two explorer panels at the same time.
