Well, I use "browser mode" with the places panel on the left (not the
directory tree panel).  That offers the fastest & easiest way to go to
the places one uses most (use bookmarks!) and because of that is much
better than spatial mode IMHO, even (or especially) for newbies.
(But that's just my opinion of course...)

BTW: spatial mode also dates back to "last century", and its concept
is probably even older(!) than that of browsing mode?
