nautilus for me because it does what its supposed to do and doesn't bother with what it shouldn't be concerned with. for that reason, its fast and reliable.

I like to use Emelfm-elm but I'm no way near a fan of emelfm2.

But I probably use bash with cd,cp,mv, etc more.

It's a shame you failed to include either of the two FM's I actually find useful: endeavour2 and evidence

Konqueror, although i havnt used all of the ones in the list, from what i have used Konqueror has been the most efficient and looks the best after some themes. it has so many built in features and 3.5 is reli good, cant fault it yet

I choose worker too.

I use it as my main file manager from 3 years now, it offers a good number of great features like the quite new avfs file system ( based on extfs from mc ) for archive/ftp support, easy and powerful configuration and the fact that it can be expanded very very much.

Buttons with still great keyboard usage make it almost fit all my needs.

Between the others i quite like also Emelfm series and also the "abandoned" File Runner i have used a lot of time ago.
