Another vote for coreutils. Rox for a gui file manager.

In the very rare cases when I need an actual file manager, I mostly use ranger.

I've always used PCManFM but it's not perfect. I guess I'll consider Thunar.

Prior to Dolphin, Konqueror was used as the file manager and can still be used for that purpose. There is also krusader.

Midnight Commander and nnn (if any, but usually just coreutils).

Krusader is quite good in my opinion - if you're on KDE.

Don't use a full filemanager, but to browse my own filesystem I just use a browser and file:// links (or http:// since I have my own apache)

Dolphin's ability to work in a net via SFTP is just brilliant.
