Altap Salamander is the most consistent and practical application I have ever worked with. It is always open on my desktop.
It has clean, uncluttered graphical interface. Almost every aspect of UI and behavior can be customized.
It has a set of very useful plugins, some of which I use very often: Text Viewer, Database Viewer, PictView (which can make a Screen Capture), Batch File Renamer; or from time to time: Disk Map, File Undelete and others.
The only drawback I experience is the lack of unicode support in Text Viewer, though Database Viewer supports unicode.
All in all, I like this application very much.
I find the WinMerge option confusing. It seems to work sometimes, but not all the times
I'm still searching for a viable alternative to Altap Salamander on Mac.
