Clover Brings Chrome-Style Tabs to Windows Explorer | Lifehacker.com

Windows: Tab management in Chrome is great, and if you wish Windows Explorer had tabs that look and work like Google Chrome, Clover is the app for you.
Once installed, Windows Explorer will have tabs that work almost exactly like the ones in Chrome work.
Cntrl+T opens a new tab, Ctrl+W closes it, even middle-clicking to close a tab works. There’s even a new tab box to click for a fresh explorer tab—just like in Chrome. If you right-click on a tab, you even get the same contextual menu options, including the option to re-open a closed tab, duplicate an existing tab, or pin a tab to the back of the list.
Clover is completely free, and supports Windows XP and higher (including the Windows 8 RTM.) We tested the app in Windows 7 and it works great. The tabbed interface is snappy and fast, and the tabbed interface compliments the stock explorer UI. The developer’s site is in Chinese, but he has an English page on his site (linked below.)
