Default File browser / Norton commander clone "noice"

I always used www/lynx as a local file browser, but I Just discovered sysutils/noice

The DESCRIPTION of the man page:
Code:
noice is a simple and efficient file browser that gets out of your way as
much as possible.  It was initially implemented to be controlled
with a TV remote control
Code:
$ noice /var

cwd: /var

 > account/
   audit/
   authpf/
   backups/
   cache/
   crash/
   cron/
   db/
   empty/
   games/
   log/
   mail/
   nsd/
   quotas/
   run/
   sasl2/
   spool/
   sysmerge/
   tmp@
   unbound/
   www/
   yp/
Moving with the arrow down key to log/ and pressing ENTER:
Code:
cwd: /var/log

 > authlog
   authlog.0.gz
   daemon
   failedlogin
   ftpd
   lastlog
   lpd-errs
   maillog
   maillog.0.gz
   messages
   pflog
   post_install.report
   rdist/
   secure
   wtmp
   xferlog
What are you using to move around in the file system and inspecting files when you are logged in through ssh?

I'm liking it. I tried a number of terminal-based file managers ten years ago, and found I didn't like any of them so I stuck with just using tcsh as my "file manager". I may stick with it. Thanks for the tip :-)

sysutils/mc runs in a console or a terminal and now supports sftp and secure shell remote logins. It also is highly configurable as far as default editors, mime types etc. It is billed as a Norton Commander Clone

If not the usual command-line tools, I use lynx. I've been using it so long it's second nature to me by now. It will be on the system anyway, so avoids adding another program. I must admit I have a mental block against the concept of "dedicated file manager" (especially graphical); if I ever had to use one I'd probably just give up computing.
