Yet another vote for keeping the location bar and removing the sidebar
by default.

And personally I think, nautilus looks somewhat, well, thick.

I'm running a w2k box, next to my linux box, win32 explorer provides a
poor but more viable/useful content; rather than a beautiful look.
Nautilus just rocks, but please, could we have, *thinner* lines (smaller
toolbar [icons, buttons]/location bar) overall the application?

Agree here. There seems to be much space wasted by rather 'thick' toolbars. The icon size seems OK to me but there is just so much 'padding' around the icons that the toolbars are inevitably thick.

The zoom
widget would be even more useful to be a combo for example.
I like the zoom how it is. Perhaps if it would be good thing that if you were to click the magnifying glass and not the + or - then a combo box could come up.

And I'd love
to have selective text *near* buttons, on the toolbar. It's totally
pointless to have text next to/under some icons, but it makes easy to
understand them for beginners.

And the status bar thing could be disabled, by default.


BTW, I'm glad that nautilus has reached the good point which allows us
to discuss its look and feels like it already turned to be an
overfeatured shell.

The speed of Nautilus is amazing considering what it was for Gnome 1.4. I personally think we now need to increase its versatility/usability/utility/function.
