- Are there any alternatives to Nautilus? 8 answers
I like Nautilus, but it suffers from lag when navigating between folders. I estimate the delay at somewhere between 300ms-800ms. Not much, but enough to notice and feel sluggish compared to Windows Explorer (running on Windows 7 on the same machine on a different disk).
Are there alternatives that will respond more quickly?
N.B. I'm running 12.10. The Ubuntu partition is on an SSD while the Win7 partition is on an HDD, so I find the difference in responsiveness particularly strange.
