What is Proto?

Proto - Prototypical; preceding the proper beginning of something. Proto is a next generation file manager designed & written by Mieszko Lassota. Really fast with a load of interesting features with a slick searchable interface. Written in C# & .NET 3.5.

How does it work?

Just start typing and Proto will try to find similar objects based on their name.

The idea

The main idea is to have a file manager fast & mouse independent (some mouse support exists and in future it will be extended) based on shortcuts, something like Emacs/Vim - it's hard if you don't know the shortcuts, but if you'll manage to learn them you'll have a very powerful and fast tool.

Target audience

Proto aims at people that prefer keyboard over mouse. People that value speed, know what they are seaching for and like to get things done.
