This question already has an answer here:

is there free equivalent to Total Commander for OSX?

  • two panels
  • drag & drop
  • tabs
  • etc ect

I found DoubleCommander the best but OSX port has its bugs. muCommander is nice too but not as good as DoubleCommnader.

FastCommander supports all file operations. Fast, stable, small, lightweight.

Can be freely downloaded and used - no restrictions, just nag screen.

You should probably take a look at Disk Order. It was created as a Total Commander equivalent for OS X. http://likemac.ru/english However it's not free either...

I am satisfied with Forklift. Although it costs $20 after trial period, it is a simple yet powerful replacement of Finder/Total Commander.

What I value the most over other alternatives:

  • Simple and clear UI: power is under the hood
  • Easy switch between 1 or 2 panels (mostly I use only one)
  • Option to setup shortcuts: Enter to open file, backspace to move up
  • Regular Expression for filters
  • Renaming multiple files
  • Sync folder: showing added/deleted/modified files
  • WebDav is much faster then in Finder

See http://www.binarynights.com for all features and screenshot.

DCommander is a good alternative but it is not free. See http://www.devstorm-apps.com/dcommander-mac/ or itunes directly: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dcommander/id583622672?mt=12

Try XtraFinder. Is like TotalFinder, but it's free

TotalFinder became a commercial solution not long ago: the full beta development stage was free and gave me plenty of time to test the software. It's an excellent solution, and I have seen almost every single bug disappear progressively.

Even if not a free solution anymore, its source is available on GitHub. I would recommend it on the grounds that it already works wonderfully well, and definitely deserve some support in my (otherwise freeware-oriented) opinion.

If freeware is yet a compulsory feature for you, Geekosaur's link has a few options.

Edit, 2013-01-07: as mentioned in another answer, XtraFinder looks like TotalFinder, but free.

Path Finder or TotalFinder, perhaps? (Both are commercial.)

I totally forgot to mentioned that it must be free/open source –  Radek Mar 10 '11 at 6:48
    
alternativeto.net/software/double-commander lists some possibilities, but I suspect you've got the best you'll find. –  geekosaur Mar 10 '11 at 6:55
