I am interested to see what emperor will look like and I hope it will not be dumbed down, these types of file managers shouldn't be.
      Have you tried emelfm2?

      I really don't know how I'd manage without it.

        Implement a built in terminal that traces your location and a fast filter bar a la Dolphin and I will use it a lot :-)

          +1. This feature in Dolphin is just a must-have for me.

          Instead of designing new file managers, the GNOME devs should rather implement a proper file dialog which runs at an acceptable speed.
          E.g. when selecting something from /usr/bin, it takes forever until the files are loaded (Not to mention that its usuablity and design are terrible).

            Gnome 3.2 has a new *ugly* default wallpaper also

            gnome 3.2 new default wallpaper makes gnome 3.2 look bad.
            http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-th...pg?h=gnome-3-2

            with 3.0 wallpaper gnome is simply beautiful.

            bug reported:

              Really love that built in terminal and how one can just drag and drop files on to it. It's much easier than typing out the entire file name!

                Just wanted to add to the chorus of love for Dolphin. The best overall browser around, IMHO. There are faster ones (pcManFM is stunningly fast), and more fully featured ones (Konqueror), but none that look good, perform well, and full of features. One of the best design jobs that I've ever seen in KDE.
                Primarily being a user of Gnome, I can only hope that the designers aspirations of relegating the file browser to emergencies/unrepentant power users comes soon since nautilus is not going to change in a significant enough way for me.
                BTW, as others have said, this is not an official Gnome project. Nautilus isn't going anywhere (unfortunately).

                    I agree.

                    I like Dolphin too (filter bar FTW), but can't agree, that perform well, SOME examples:

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYLHVZggnlQ still alive and kicking
                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rf3A6BFz9Eo this will be fixed in 4.8
                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_MDlPa9jeE partially thanks to horrible kio


                    btw. Emperor is slow like hell too.

                      Even Microsoft realized it was a mistake to remove it from Explorer.

                      Oh, and I would rather use Thunar than Nautilus, even in GNOME.
