I normally use the file manager included with the DE. If i'm using a WM, then I may install a lightweight one.

I love Thunar. Light, responsive, simple, and plenty of room to customize.

Konqueror comes in second.

Only reason I like Dolphin is because of its feature to "Group by", it makes life a lot easier when your folder is flooded with files and folders!

My filemanager of the year is dolphin, but since I moved to gnome (since kde4) I use nautilus.
Still vote for dolphin, it has some useful functions that I wished, nautilus had them too (the filter for example).
