I wonder why Thunar developers still do not include tabs in this great file manager. Nautilus, Dolphin, even PCManFM, has tabs.
Pcmanfm for example is a lightweight file manager, and has tabs. Why then Thunar does not? If the answer is to add tabs to Thunar decreases performance, I think there could be two alternatives:
- Or you can enable the use of 2 panels, as in Nautilus.
- Or you can limit the use of only 2 tabs.
I think it's time for developers to think about it. Having to open a window for each folder gives me the feeling that I'm using Windows XP/Vista/7.
The other thing I wanted to say was that Thunar had the option to format USB flash drives. I know this can be done with Gparted or through the terminal, but for the end user would be more comfortable Do not you think?
Do not take this as a criticism but as a suggestion.
Thunar is a file manager. If you want to format/partition, you use a partionner tool.
I know there will always be a debate between those how use a telephone to make call and a camera to shoot photos and those who use smartphone ...

Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...
hello, id like to know if the opinion on the "format" matter has changed:
i am using xubuntu 13.10, and it doesnt have any program that can format a drive installed by default, i know it can be done from the terminal, but its a bit prohibitive for new users such as myself, and im not completely comfortable using disks or gparted to format an external drive knowing i can make quite some damage.
i wonder if anyone shares the opinion of this post:
