pcmanfm first and foremost, it's what thunar should be but isn't. Then mc and rox, which was favourite until I found pcmanfm

Nautilus, now that it got tabs. I like being able to use it to connect to my file server via SSH. I think dolphin and konqueror both do this, but I'm more of a GNOME user.

Thuner, its bit different but good at performance
Nautilus is good and easy but costs with performance.

PCManFM for me. It could do with a merge with Thunar though. I like thunar's plugins, and I like PCManFM's tabbed browsing, ability to mount/unmount non-removable partitions and the fact that unlike Thunar, it shows the REAL size of the contents of a folder in properties.

I just wish the two combined forces.

Thunar. The excellent custom action is so easy and always come in handy.

Thunar achieves the best balance of function and form.
