    Re: Pcmanfm vs. Thunar?

    Since I set up all my network shares myself in my fstab, thunar rocks. It's blazing fast, and the thunar-thumbnailer, thunar-archive-plugin and thunar-media-tags-plugin really kick butt. The thumbnailer is lightning fast.

    Re: Pcmanfm vs. Thunar?

    for me the coolest thing about pcmanfm is that it can open directories in tabs that is something neither nautilus and thunar has ... beside it is blazingly fast .. the downside is the lack of trash support .. but in all i prefer it to nautilus ..although i still use nautilus cus i dont know how to make pcman default in gnome.. and if doing so wont break ubuntu ..

    if it only had file type saving support and trashcan support.
    Could you elaborate on the "file type saving support" thing? I'm just not understanding what you are talking about.

    Thunar is so limited doesn't support samba shares, there is not Find tool.

    I'm pretty sure pcmanfm doesn't support samba shares either, and I'm not sure about the latter.

    My preference is Nautilus.

    Network browser for one that I know of. You can use pyneighborhood
    . Once you get away from nautilus theres all these things you start to notice that are missing

    I go for PCManFM. Maybe, simple because of the tabbed browsing feature, which is very very important.

    With a little trick, it can. Here's the trick.

    meaning on both nautilus and konqueror it has a document creator on the fly, PCmanFM however can only create text files and new folders
