Good file managers for Xfce?

Hello. I have Linux Mint Xfce. I have a problem with finding a good file manager.

I hate Thunar because it's too simplistic and lacks tabbed browsing. I like PCManFM the most but it keeps crashing and sometimes when it crashes it won't run again until I'll restart computer.
Tried Dolphin but it's very slow.

Which file manager is fast and stable on Xfce and has with tabbed browsing?

I don't know which Thunar you are talking about, as multiple-tabbed browsing in Thunar works fine for me???

Probably thunar.

Do you find thunar to be slow or unstable? If so, how?

I don't have multi-tabbed browsing in thunar. I have Thunar 1.4.0. I'm not sure how to get a new version.

Thanks. It seems to be gone, though :( .
Cannot access PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~xubuntu- ... /xfce-4.10) to get PPA information, please check your internet connection.
Is there any painless way to move to a new LTS? I probably should do it anyway as the end of support is coming, but thinking about having to re-install all my games, all stuff I have on PlayOnLinux, doing all the configurations again, makes it extremely unappealing :/ .
