I tried the favorites there, but wasn't blown away. Basically all of
them have usability issues.
However, I had a look today and found one I really like. The only issue
I found with it so far is minor (active tab in firefox could be better
visible). Thought I let you know.


I use WaspLogin (this variant has dark background in filemanagers) with
some GNOME icons now, and really love it.
