That's a hard one.

Konqueror is fine - Dolphin is essentially the same, but faster.

mc is even faster, but without the fancy pants. emelFM2 is mc WITH the fancy pants.

Soooo...I don't know Maybe the one from "Jurassic Park": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fsn

Talking

The only file manager that I have ever used that compares to bash is the original sh! Who needs a gui when the shell can do everything a gui can and more quicker and with a lot more options.

Thunar

I made life easy for myself and use XFCE desktop on all my Linux computers. I just copy my config files to a new machine and its ready to go.

If you have worked much on Windows, you should know the Total Commander. Any Windows admin that does not know the Total Commander really needs to hang their head in shame. There is a kinda-clone for *nix that is called Krusader. It's not bad but alas has not been updated for almost three years and appears to be a dead project. I've used it and others but I keep going back to the Midnight Commander. I grew up with the Norton Commander back in the 1980s and 1990s, and later the Windows Commander (until Microsoft bullied them into removing the word "windows" from their name, now they are the Total Commander).

Alas, I have not found a gui file manager for *nix that does it for me, which is why I stick with the Midnight Commander.

Krusader is a KDE program and thus falls out of sbolokanov's question. And it is far from being abandoned...

Nemo in Mint (a replacement for Nautilus) is nice.

It allows changes to the colours of folder icons plus the addition of emblems (sub-icons) to categorise individual icons.

If http://wiki.lxde.org/en/PCManFM#Features is up to date, PCManFM seems very good for a Lxde system, but rather basic for a full Debian/Gnome based system.

(I don't like tabs)..

Never one to follow the crowd, my preference is Krusader.

I stand corrected on the dependencies. But their last update and beta was 2012. Sounds dead to me. Maybe they have an update planned?

There is activity on the bugtracker. Although I do not know when the next release is planned. Maybe KDE folks are busy porting everything to Qt5 and Frameworks 5.

I agree that Bash is the best file manager. The fastest, easily scriptable, can be used without a mouse, ubiquitous. I have attempted to use some "real" file managers but I always got back to Bash.
