Gnome Ah, Nautilus, GNOME's default file manager. It's been with us for a long time now, and it has certainly been at the centre of a number of controversies. Do we go with a spatial or a navigational Nautilus? Should we replace the location bar with a breadcrumb bar? And now, it's time to move on. Recently, it has become apparent to many that Nautilus could use a make-over.

Finally, Stop: It's actually useful for non-local filesystems which don't load for whatever reason. What should I do? Use Back? Close the window? Wait for a timeout?

Reload and stop button could be one. If nothing is happening in the folder a reload button is present and if you click on it (for refresh) it changes to stop button. This way you have both functions but only one button.

I think you missed the point... a modern file manager should not have a reload button (The folders should update as files are modified) at all I could only see stop for large folders or perhaps network filesystems.

The refresh is also needed for network filesystems.
