"And (I think) it succeeded. In the beginning most of
the users were reticent regarding this idea, since Konqueror
provided anything one could possibly ask from a file manager.
Besides, most KDE fans thought Dolphin looks too much like with
Nautilus and may be limited regarding usability and configuration.
However, I see in Dolphin an appropriate manager for day-to-day
Dolphin is split in three main components (except for the menubar
and toolbar). The first one would be the Places widget, located by
default to the left, and containing shortcuts to the most important
places like home directory, root, trash, and mounted devices. The
center is occupied with the file browser, while to the right there
is the file information widget. The good thing is that the Places
and Information widgets can be moved and grouped wherever one
likes. Another plus is the way the icons in the Places tab resize
depending on the tab's width."
