Thunar is the default for xfce as well.  It doesn't do network
browsing.  IMO, it is among the things that make xubuntu a poor
choice.  To do a lot of things in xfce, you need to run the gnome
stuff that is installed in xubuntu.  If you going to run gnome under
xfce, why not just run gnome.

That said, I like fluxbox for low powered machines and when I need a
gui on a server.  For servers I install fluxbox or IceWM, and webmin
and do everything through the browser.
