So you probably answered yourself a question. Krusader is not a part of
Konqueror. It's another app. But you're right, that it fits it's
environment. So, I must admit I also would like to see TC-like file manager
that fits well with gnome DE, but I can\t say it's crucial, or _that_
importing, if you have alternatives.

Be more specific. I also "use GNOME extensivle and I will". But if you
say,that you accomplish some tasks under Windows, than i must say I'm
puzzled (becouse I stronly disagree). Again, elaborate. I know that GNOME
isn't perfect, but if you want sth to change for better, you have to
buttress your claims saying what is missing and  why, not just complain.

I also think there is no such words in english dictionary. First: don't
patent it. Make it GPL :) . Second: I like them too.

Well not exactly. You only have to click 'ctrl+l' to get back your 'normal'
path in location bar (you can even have it all the time if you want)
(that's not that much if you really want to make extensive use of
keyboard), when you are in file open dialog, just start typing. What
exactly you can't do ? I don't think it's that bad. I actually don't see
that someone is forcing on me mouse clicking instead of keyboard navigation
(although there are some glitches here and there).

Well, I just looked at their demo video and i must's awfully
mouse-intensive. Why is that, if it is supposed to be keyboard-friendly ?

Kind Regards.
