Lets think this through for a moment.  The tooltip on Favourites tab
shows "Firefox" for Firefox, "Empathy" for Empathy, "Shotwell" for
"Shotwell". .....  then "Files" for Nautilus.  What's wrong with calling
the application its real name in this case?

I'll go with Julien's suggestion if "Nautilus" wont sell, but "Files" is
just ambiguity (and confusion) in disguise.
