Xfce No doubt, all of you have heard of Xfce and those who haven't will hear about it soon anyway. I remember trying out Xfce for the first time back on SuSE 9.0. I am not sure if it came with the distrobution or if I downloaded it. At the time 9.0 came out I remember thinking to myself "nice, good potential, could be eyecandy, fast..." but I still logged into KDE upon booting. Sure I tried Gnome but somehow for a windows-commer KDE was more user friendly at the time. Update: More screenshots of XFce.

a) An address bar that states my current location in the filesytem and allows me to type in it.
You should press the '/' key that opens the address in an input-box editable in an auto-completion way ala Konqueror. Also, use the backspace to go up one directory at one time.
Also try the Alt/Shift/Ctrl clicking...

b) A back button (not just an "up" button).
I do agree it is missing, but with the use of the '/' feature, I admit it is not really necessary... but really should be implemented at least as an optional button

c) Bookmarks
It is present under this green arrow pointing to an orange circle.

But having that default hard wired ain't too flexible.
Buttons are configurable using the Filer setup tool (right click the ROX-Filer icon and choose 'options' in the context-menu)

Wouldn't it be better if you could customize the toolbar and add/remove the buttons you need, like in Firefox? Is it something hard to implement?
THAT would be great... Surely it will come in the future.

ROX-Filer/OroboROX/0install just... ROX! ;-)

NB: I am talking here about the ROX-Filer v2.1.{3|4} available using zero-install ( ) and the one in the Debian sources is damn old.
