I used to vote (KDE) on this but am tired of desktop environments. Some are still light/fast like XFCE, but almost everything I've tried including that always has various major bugs... MATE seemed light/fast, LXDE did, TDE did (but thousands of bugs,) and even lighter may be CDE & NsCDE, and I've heard LXQT is. I've been trying to switch from KDE but nothing else has the features yet (like as configurable a Night Colour Control.)

Definitely, XFCE is the most complete... but it is unheard of, that so far, the developing version can incorporate something as simple as the search field in the file explorer "thunar".
/*However, Mate remains the easiest to customize, most user-friendly to manipulate and preview all files and connect via ftp*/
KDE and Gnome, have followed the same model, prevailing disorder; kde3->plasma, Gnome2->Gnome3!

Honestly one of the reasons I use GNOME is because of ADHD (inattentive type). But for others, I think that it's a good DE if you're a user who isn't into super-customizing. (Like I was. Fond KDE memories)
