Attached is a patch (+2 new files) for a cool new sidepanel plug-in for the browser that mimics the GTK FileChooser. Files nautilus-places-sidebar.* need to be in the src subdirectory.

See my new blog for further info and screenshots:

I must say i don't understand this at all. Its basically the tree view
without any features, but with the bookmarks visible always and a couple
of button taking up a lot of space for functions that are easily
accessible in the menu already.

What is the usecase for this?

1) Strong user demand - see nat friedman's blog at

2) New file managers like thunar are heading this way (os/x already does it this way)

3) Nice and consistent with the GTKFileChooser way of navigating.

I am personally more productive with it too as mounted volumes and common places are now easily within reach.
