    Am I the only one who prefers spatial mode?

    It seems to make more sense and was way cleaner in interface.

    But I will not complain about it too much as its just a simple change to return to spatial mode (which btw all the people complaining about it could also use).

      A pre-release. Not enabled by default.

      Then apply those changes only when Shell in running. For years Nautilus' brain-dead behavior was defended, but once a new desktop is remotely on the horizon, Nautilus is suddenly changed as if it's not possible to wait for that change until 3.0.
      But whatever. Every distro (IIRC except Fedora) always enabled browser mode by default anyway.

      As if I'd ever use a DE that can't even place file icons right...
      No thanks. Plasma and Dolphin for me.
