I don't know how it used to be. Compared to Dolphin, it's much lighter.

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
shares.)

Subtle suggestion that this might be considered off-topic ... ;-)
