On the rare occasions I use a file manager, Midnight Commander seems to work the best. I also like MC's built in hex editing.

don't really use Thunar in my xfce: i manage files in shell. In this case i'd choose mc, but i rarely use it either. As noticed by JMJ_coder, coreutils ftw

Usually I prefer lists for my file manager as opposed to icons, but I liked the way nautilus looked that it has actually made an icon lover out of me. Sometimes.

Konquerer. I prefer its older incarnations but still the king of the hill in functionality and options for me. But thats more from experience than expert opinion.

I voted Nautilus. When I tried Dolphin it was so confusing I basically could not use it.

Even though my system has nautilus, i had no interest to use it, because konqueror and dolphin made it stick to them.

Krusader got my vote. I've been using it more and more even though I don't like KDE particularly much.
