I voted for SpaceFM. I found it to be the best compared to others i have tried. I like thunar a lot too. Also, one that I haven't used and want to try is mc.

Some people also suggested vifm. I didn't know about that. As a vi fan, I will certainly give it a try :)

And then the remote protocol support:
and possibly more...
Had it support for any sort of thumbnail preview, i think even bat-man would use it
I'll have to give mc another try. Last time I played with it I found that, for some reason, copying and moving were a little counter-intuitive and the sftp support was difficult to set up. However, I'm fairly sure that was a bination of Debian packaging and my unfamiliarity. It's certainly very useful and powerful.
