    I using Root Explorer but it crashes my phone too often. I need a built-in text editor, multi tab support or bookmarks. Bonus if there's GDrive support. And it shouldn't be too heavy. Something like Astro with root.
    So, any advices guys?

    I am QUITE fond of Solid Explorer. It does everything you're looking for - Built in text editor; Bookmarks; No multi-tab (yet, at least), but it does do side-by-side in landscape; It does have Google Drive support (assuming that's what you mean by GDrive)

    Unfortunately it's not free. However, I've been using it since it was in beta, and it is WELL worth the $1.99. By far the most feature packed file system explorer I've used that manages to not slow down because of its features at the same time.

    Edit - and yes, of course, it supports root.

    I like FX File Explorer because it also comes with a solid text editor (i needed to be able to open large log files and this did the job) and if you pay for "Plus" there is cloud integration (Google, Dropbox, Skydrive, etc)
