Latest GNOME 3 Nautilus Mock-ups Point to Refined Look
NOME designer Allan Day has updated GNOME 3′s Nautilus mock-ups with a refined new look.
The changes see Nautilus follow GNOME 3′s new application design patterns.
Updated – needed?
Recent updates to Nautilus in GNOME 3 have streamlined the once button-heavy interface. The new designs take this a step further by removing the left hand ‘places’ pane entirely.
Instead, the removed items would be accessible by right-clicking on the ‘Places’ button. Here entries are laid out in a horizontal rather than vertical format.
Will these mock-ups make it into code? Is this Nautilus’s new look? Time will tell on the front – but I can’t help but hope that this is the direction that Linux’s premier file-manager takes.
