At the moment, it's only a pipe menu browser where you can open each
file with the given application shown beside the file. Maybe it will
grow in the future with more features. Thumbnails would be great, but
they aren't realizable with the given menu from Windowmaker. So, at the
moment that's the best you can have, a simple pipe menu browser :)

Maybe I can add some more options to open a "real" file browser in a
specific directory or open a shell. Have to think about some features
anyway, so maybe you can expect some more of it.

That's another topic. :) But you can have a look at FSViewer.app
(http://www.bayernline.de/~gscholz/linux/fsviewer/), it's a file
manager written in WINGs, it fits perfectly into Windowmaker.
