      A lot of features, and Clover 3 crashes from time to time. It is a great alternative, however design could be improved.

      A better integration of tabs in Windows Explorer than Clover. Also, Clover crash often but QTTabBar never crash for me on Windows 10

      Reliable, fully featured and works well. Don't be misled by the outdated eyesore screenshots, current version has a native Windows 10 look that does a good job of not getting in the way.

      davidlarson I've been trying to find a good replacement for Clover. This has been the best that I've found. Not as clean as just being Windows Explorer with Chrome tabs. But it has a lot of other cool stuff. I really like the color coding for when a file was last updated.

      It is easy to install and I ran into a bug in Clover with the favorites bar on one machine that Tablacus did not encounter. Plus Tablacus seems to have all the important features and the latest version of Clover triggers virus warnings from my antivirus software (Avast) on download.
