Which are the best file managers?

Can anyone share a list of some best file managers for Linux. I checked this guide but I want to explore more.

Edited the title …
You can start here Category:File managers - ArchWiki
And you can easily find more here 30 Best File Managers for Linux Systems

I have always found the file manager of a particular desktop adequate (KDE = dolphin, XFCE = Thunar, etc), but I’m more of a command line user.

There’s a website that provides alternatives. I selected the alternative to dolphin and got this list.

Doing an Internet search for “file manager” review linux will produce a nice list of articles. I tend to favor opensource.com.

“The best” is subjective. It also depends on your Desktop Environment. Some integrate better than others. There are plenty of tech blogs out there with lists like these.

This is a support forum, not Reddit. There are plenty of “What is the best…?” posts there to browse.
