I generally work a fair amount from the command line in order to launch vim, git, ssh and so on. However, I find the Finder's columnar view more natural for browsing through my files. Unfortunately, it's less natural for everything I want to do with the files.
What about the best of both worlds? Are there any popular command line programs / commands out there that deviate from the standard set by the venerable
ls for navigating and browsing files in the terminal? I'm sure people must have tried interesting ways of visualizing files, opening folders, etc.
