I tend to run awesomeWM most of the work I do is cli. however, when i do need a graphical program my default is thunar. its fast. lightweight and has plugins for a lot of extra features. Do not forget that just because you are running Gnome does not mean you cant use something from KDE like dolphin as well. 

The great thing about linux is the ease of installing and uninstalling programs. Try installing all the ones you see in thread see which one meets your need and then remove the others. 

Kind Regards

With awesome, Ranger is a good file manager...it runs in a terminal. It's themeable and uses hotkeys.

 

It fits in with things like rtorrent and vim :) There is also another one called lscd its written in bash I believe.

As an AwesomeWM user key commands are second nature. Also note that any good cli ninja is a master of key commands. Don't give up on memorizing key commands. you'll find a lot of them work in many different apps and are all related in some cases. 

 

As for the original poster. here is an article that list some popular file managers http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-linux-file-managers-worth-checking-out/

I'm a tiling WM user too, and that's actually part of the reason why I hate excessive shortcuts. There's nothing more annoying than an application that just happens to use the same shortcut as a WM shortcut for some critical feature and I have to go and remap it but first have to think of something intuitive enough that I'll remember but won't conflict with any of the other shortcuts!
