FileRunner is an open source, efficient and simple graphical file manager for Linux and UNIX operating systems. It has built-in FTP/SFTP support and is very configurable.

FileRunner was created to ease you from the burden of typing thousands of "ls", "cd", "mv", "rm" and "cp" in a day just to get your work done.
