I have used the fusesmb for network browsing.

Installing by default worries me a bit.  With fusesmb you have to
store the unencrypted smb passwords in a text file for it to work.

On the system where I use fusesmb I have dm-crypt setup for all my
filesystems.  So having my passwords unencrypted in the filesystem
isn't as big of an issue since the entire partition is encrypted.   I
don't think most people use whole-disk encryption though.  So it seems
like users should be warned/reminded about the possibility that anyone
with a livecd could steal there authentication credentials.
