GNOME 2.24 Release Notes
With Nautilus 2.24, file browsing for GNOME has been taken a step further. Now comes, file browsing, eject buttons in the Places sidebar, and a new Compact view! *Wait to take it all in*

Tab browsing in effect, along with the new Eject button for ejectable items in the sidebar:
But not very impressive. KDE 4 with Dolphin already achieved this, but I never noticed it for some reason, even when I installed KDE 4.1. The KDE team needs to emphasize more on new features with cool screenshots instead of just saying it with one sentence in the changelog and have nobody notice it. But everyone uses Nautilus, so this is good.
