More features to caja file manager.

Add options like chrome and firefox:
duplicate window.
duplicate tab.
Close others tabs.
Open current tab or window as root.
Open in terminal as root.

Now Caja is better than Nautilus.
But with this ideas will be amazing!

The file manager is an important application for a SO.

The Caja developers are unlikely to read your suggestions here. Which is why the forum rules say to post suggestions for developers not here but on the collaboration website of the developers instead. For Caja that is found on the MATE Desktop project https://github.com/mate-desktop/. Search open and closed issues on Caja and Caja Extensions for something similar as to your idea before posting a new feature request.

That said, these things should probably be extensions. They may be something you often have a need for but I'm hard pressed to image a majority of users would find a need for these often. I'd guess that the majority of people never use tabs feature on their file browser anyway :) As such, encumbering the menus with more options is unlikely something the developers would want to make a default. But it could be an extension.

New tab already does that. File > New Tab or Ctrl+T opens a new tab with the same directory as in the current tab.
