Why Dolphin is a Good Choice for KDE4

Filed under
Software

I've always been a big fan of Konqueror so when I heard that Dolphin was going to be the new default file manager for KDE4 I was disappointed. But after researching the decision further and actually giving Dolphin a try, I'm a convert.

One thing I had to think about is why I like Konqueror, and the biggest reason isn't Konqueror itself, but its integration with KIO Slaves and its flexibility. Fortunately Dolphin maintains much of that while actually being more efficient and focused than Konqueror.

Features

Some of my favorite features are simple ones. The toolbar makes it very easy to switch between views, and even better, switching between split views and a single page couldn't be easier.
