There is no more versatile File Manager than Konqueror. I especially like using Konqueror as an ftp client. Although, I often use Dolphin for quick file browsing.

Volted Dolphin for its many useful features. I use Thunar on Xfce and MC on the terminal. ROX is awesome too!

Dolphin and only Dolphin. I used, and tried many other (Caja, Thunar and so on). Only Dolphin has what i needed, also it can connect to Samba shares, and network shares. Is fast, looks good, has good options (i love dividing Dolphin with F3 key in order to work on one window but with different locations). As a matter of fact, when i see other file manager...i'm astonished how poor they can be.

I like Thunar. I think now it has tabs it's pretty much got everything - -the built-in bulk-rename is awesome, for example.

I've used Thunar the most. Does everything I need with good performance/memory usage.
Got tired of Nautilus suffering from random issues with high CPU in Ubuntu and loosing occasionally useful features in Debian with Gnome.
I am quite happy to use Dolphin when using KDE.

Cheers, Nick
