    Comparison of directory opus and xyplorer

    In the past i used opus for more than 8 years and also using now currently

    Features lacking in opus ---

    1)Option to open files by single click is not there

    2)Bold font for active tab is not there

    3)Icon to toggle between details mode and thumbnails is not there

    4)In opus if the breadcrumb bar's navigation buttons are removed then some of the features of breadcrumb don't work like it doesn't show downward path

    5)No silent update

    6) File copy and move dialogue's(screen's) are not feature packed

    7)No,live filtering of item's in list

    8)Default keyboard shortcuts are not easy to use and natural

    9)No,on the fly font size changing

    10)No restore selection for e.g if you have selected some files and accidentally clicked somewhere else then the selection is lost ,this is not the case with xyplorer.

    11)No option for displaying file's age(by which one can know how old a file is,like to show as 3 months or 5 months) as opposed to current time

    12)Various views in one icon for e.g details,tiles,different size for thumbnails is not there

    13)No in built dark theme

    14)Branch view is not very good

    15)No visual filter for files for e.g to see quickly files modified within a certain period like modified 3 hours back or 1 day,2 days etc...

    16)Name columns width adjusting is not remembered automatically as a user changes it

    17)Can't iconize a tab

    Like the above point's there are still many features not available in opus.While in xyplorer all the above features are there and many other's also.

    A software designer must make many decisions about which features to include and which to leave out. You can't include everything. Try that and your product will be in a perpetual state of development and never be ready for market.

    Understand that which features are most important are only opinions. What might be very important to you may be of limited interest to others, and feature of importance to others may interest you little. I have little familiarity with either product and can not comment on specific features. I do know that they are both very complex with many features. I am sure that Directory Opus has many features that XYPlorer lacks. Both products are in active development and features will be added in future releases.

    The designers of both products have different backgrounds, different experiences, different biases, and will make different decisions as to which features to implement. This is inevitable.

    The only way to have software with the exact features you want is to design and build it yourself. Few people have that ability. The rest of us must choose between available products.
