  It does not at all, but I think it can be added.

  Yeah, because I did that in, like, an afternoon.  It's unfinished.

  In any case, I think the current situation is a bit bad design-wise,
because the Mozilla running in  a separate process and Nautilus' GNOME
VFS layer will always be competing  with each other.

  So for  example, if  you open  a networked file  with GNOME  VFS and
figure out  you need Mozilla to  display it (because  e.g. it's HTML),
you need  to reconnect to the  same site with Mozilla  again.  And you
cannot keep persistent connections to sites to optimize things either.
