I am actually pretty happy with Thunar and its performance, it  does 
everything i need with a decent resource consumption and the custom 
actions are really really useful besides the Xfce integration of course. 
About the slow start time it just happens the first time you open it and 
if you do not use shared networks there is a way to get rid of it.

Am I reading it right? Thunar WILL HAVE TABS when Xfce 4.12 comes?
