Now that the Nautilus file manager in Gnome 3 has decided to do away with a tree pane, its time to look for an alternative. Can anybody point me to an alternate file manager for Gnome 3 ?

So... Nautilus in Ringtail has the lefthand tree removed. I'm not going to whine or carry on, it's not going to change anything. Straight to the point:
What alternate file managers could people suggest to try. I liked Nautilus so something similar would be good. My only requirement is that it has the tree on the left like Nautilus had up until very recently.
GNOME Commander is a free two pane file manager in the tradition of Norton and Midnight Commander, it is built on the GTK-toolkit and GnomeVFS. 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.
Ubuntu is still using a lot of GNOME applications, including the file manager Nautilus (now Files), but that will change soon enough.It seems that the way GNOME developers are working on Nautilus is not exactly helping Canonical. Ubuntu developers are unhappy with the some features that have gone missing from the file manager and are discussing making their own.
Elementary OS uses a program called files as the default file manager.
I would like to use Nautilus as my default file manager as used in Ubuntu 12.04 . I have GNOME Nautilus 3.4.2 installed on my machine, but however the only way to invoke this file manager is using the terminal.
