File Managers


  • QTTabBar

    Free Windows Windows Explorer Website

    QTTabBar is an extension for Windows Explorer that brings tabbed browsing to Microsoft's file browser. It comes with a number of nifty features including a favorites function for launching folders and applications, groupings of folders that can be opened together, tooltip preview functions for a number of file types, and others. It is also highly customizable and hotkey-enabled.

    QTTabBar was written by a Japanese developer known as “Quizo” (hence the name QTTabBar) but because of lack of time, he gave the project over to Paul Accisano.
    Actually "Quizo" was resumed development.
    Open source branch of QTTabBar: http://qttabbar.sourceforge.net/

  • TagSpaces

    Freemium Mac Windows Linux Android Android Tablet ... Self-Hosted Chrome Firefox Website

    TagSpaces is an open source personal data manager.
    It helps you organize and browse your files on every platform.

    Cross-platform file tagging and file finding

    Organize your photos, ebooks, music, recipes or invoices in the same way on almost every platform. We currently support Windows, Linux, OS X, Android, Firefox and Chrome
    With the help of tags you can do research better or you can manage projects using the GTD methodology.
    The application persists the tags in the file names. As a consequence, the tagging information is not vendor locked and can be used even without the TagSpaces application. The absence of a database, makes syncing of the tag meta information easy across different devices with services like Dropbox.
    TagSpaces features basic file management operations, so it can be used as tag-based file manager.

    Evernote alternative for note taking and information management

    You can create and edit notes in plain text, MARKDOWN and HTML file formats.
    You can organize webpages saved in for example MHT or MHTML format.
    You use TagSpaces to organize you e-book library, containing for example PDF or EPUB books.
    You can create a personal wiki for tracking of your projects, ideas or memories.

    Preview and navigation of your local file content

    Browse your digital photos, listen your local music and video content, open PDF documents and MHTML files. The list of supported files types for previewing and editing is constantly growing.
    This feature makes the Chrome version of TagSpaces a perfect addition to the Google's Chromecast, with which your can cast your local documents, images, videos and music to your TV or other presentation device.
