I don't know how it used to be. Compared to Dolphin, it's much lighter.
I use rox filer on my Pandaboard as it has a comparable
feature to Thunar but loads almost instantly compared to the 20s or so
I can be waiting for Thunar to get its act together (this is running
off a SSD via USB2). I can load dolphin in the same time it takes to
load Thunar under fluxbox.
I use Thunar, it works for me. It's what XFCE uses to display its
desktop. A friend who uses XFCE uses PCManFm and likes that.
That 20s (or longer) Thunar load is due to a longstanding bug (either in
Thunar or the underlying GNOME Virtual File System it uses). The
workaround for that is to disable GVFS's automatic scanning of network
shares. (Or do like I did: remove the GVFS module that does that. I
mount file shares using fstab, so no need to have GVFS scan for network
