The path bar is pretty cool. There is one problem with it though, its
very hard to type in a location (as this opens a new window), which is
actually pretty common. This is a common complaint about the Gtk+

If we go for a pathbar in Nautilus we really have to solve the input-uri
thing better than the filechooser.

I wrote a patch for gThumb yesterday, replacing the location entry with
a pathbar. (It's a mit whacky, so I'll probably rewrite it). Maybe
"replace" is the wrong word for the location entry is just hidden by default. Hitting ctrl+L will hide the pathbar and unhide the location entry, after pressing enter or tab the location entry is hidden again and
the pathbar re-appears.

Maybe that would be a solution for Nautilus? In this case I'd suggest to
make it sensible to / also, just like the file selector.


IMHO that's a good solution.

You avoid a new dialog popping up just to open a different location. CTRL-L (or Go to Location) should simply replace the pathbar with the location entry and bring it back when done. This way you get the best from both worlds as the pathbar is really great for browsing while the entry to type a new (totally different) location. Moreover all location related widgets (pathbar/entry) will maintain their actual position on the nautilus window without confusing nautilus users.

It would be really great to get a pathbar in nautilus 2.12, any possibility?
