Said about Thunar as an alternative
Much faster and snappier than Nemo (Mint 17.3), automatically imports bookmarks from Nema in Linux Mint
Positive comment • almost 6 years ago • as an alternative to Nemo
Faster (and more effective for older, low-resource machines), but devoid of split panes.
Positive comment • over 2 years ago • as an alternative to Polo File Manager
shift-clicking and ctrl-clicking act like most people expect, unlike dolphin, which has some akward +/- system that I never learned, and drove me nuts.
