"In this article I will overview 7 essential
applications for the Xfce desktop environment, including
screenshots, most popular features, strong and weak points.
"1. File manager: Thunar (full review here)
Thunar is the default file manager in Xfce. It comes with a simple
interface (just like any other Xfce application), side panel,
configurable location selector (if you want the typical location
bar to appear in the toolbar), possibility to sort items, zoom
in/out, three view modes (icons, detailed list, compact list), and
image previews. Thunar is simpler than Nautilus, but in turn it
will consume less resources. It offers basic configuration options
but it will get the job done, especially if you only need to do
basic file browsing and management."
