I have been using Mac since past 8 months and have loved every bit of it. But with time, I have surely felt the need for some changes. And a powerful file manager is one of the things.

I call it a super file manager as it has got power like a super hero. Apart from being a basic file manager, muCommander serves as FTP, SFTP, SMB, NFS, HTTP, Amazon S3, Hadoop HDFS and Bonjour clients.

All the basic functions like Copy, Cut, Paste, New Folder, Delete can be carried out using keyboard shortcuts which makes this whole thing more simpler. You will find it very user friendly.
