      QTTabBar vs groupy opinions
      This alternative is disputed. QTTabBar is still a legitimate alternative to groupy, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Won't tab all applications but the best for adding tabs to the file explorer which badly needs them! The quick look into subfolders is super useful and I can't live without now!

      For several years, I have been looking for something that's specifically like File Explorer on steroids, and this is it! QTTabBar does have a learning curve, but it's so incredibly feature rich that it's worth the time and thoughtful effort.

      TabExplorer vs groupy opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Tabexplorer (and a TON of the other alternatives listed) add tabs to the windows file explorer. Groupy is a tabbed UI that basically "eats" other programs and stuffs them into itself as tabs. One is an enhancement to a file browser, the other is a Windowing Manager.
