It would be great if the program showed thumbnails and previews for files other than pictures, such as pdfs and video files.
Also, the ability to browse samba shares would be really useful, provided that its implementation would not overly bloat the program.

    For browsing samba in file manager, I suggest you to look at FuseSMB. Not everyone requires browsing SAMBA. Please keep this file manager as light as possible.

    I think trying to "preview" those kinds of things (especially video clips) would probably bloat PCManFM.

    Trying to add Samba cababilities would be really nice, but it would also really add bloat. Maybe it could be added in the future as a plugin.
