But still, I agree with bimsebasse. When they ax the extra pane (F3), Nautilus gets the boot.
While I prefer to use Dolphin, I think Nautilus is okay. Like you, I prefer List view. Some reasons why I prefer Dolphin:
- Easy to customize the toolbar. For example, Nautilus has no "New Tab" button and no "Home" button that you can put on the toolbar.
- The button to split the screen into two panes; in Nautilus, you have to either press F3 or navigate to View > Extra Pane, and as you and bimsebasse have noted, they're getting rid of the extra pane, anyway.
- Much easier to permanently switch to using an editable location bar; in Nautilus, you have to change a setting in dconf-editor or use the command gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true.
- The "Information" panel in Dolphin is very useful to me; Nautilus doesn't have one.
There are probably some other things I can't think of right now, but those are the main ones.
