Cool, I'll add these to the web page.

You cant have separate packages right now, because the view is compiled
in the same binary.

Hem, this should just work, because we use a macro from gconf. Please
post a bug about it.

This is something that also other GNOME apps does I think. Maybe it's
worth to check how they solve the prob ?

I think the drop down is more clear and consistent with nautilus.

Well you can set gnome style to icons only. Text beside icon doesnt
allow to give some icons priority and have only the text of these

Uhm ctrl+l works well ;) I'm not opposed to have on in toolbar editor

We need to shrink it a bit by default I think, there is a bug open

You can edit the titles inline, F2 and add topics with dnd.
We thought editing url was a low priority task, so it's available only
in properties.

You could just put the proxy configuration on your panel ?;)
