File manager/folder browser alternative?

Viewing files/folders in Konqueror is a bit flaky and what is a better alternative file manager/folder viewer?

How would I set the new file manager as default?

I like XFE but I could not tell you how to "set it as default" as I don't use KDE (I use Enlightenment).

Thanks. How do I set it as default file manager?

I can set video, audio, application and etc via Control Centre, but I don't see one for File manager?
