I'm using Krusader as a file manager, however it sometimes works too slow and that's why I'm looking for another one which is lighter and quicker. I like the rich functionality Krusader has and I'd like another one has it also.

Have looked at Nautilus? – Mitch Jun 8 '13 at 4:01
@Mitch, you are confusing a file manager (like Total Commander in Windows) with "file shell" (like Explorer in Windows). I don't need a file shell or explorer, I need a file manager. – Alan Coromano Jun 8 '13 at 4:21

Try GNOME Commander

GNOME Commander is a "two-pane" graphical file manager for the GNOME desktop environment. GNOME Commander aims to fulfill the demands of more advanced users who like to focus on file management, their work through special applications and running smart commands.

To install Gnome Commander, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get install gnome-commander

it's pretty fast but its functionality is pretty poor compared to Krusader. – Alan Coromano Jun 8 '13 at 6:31
