as you already know, I like the network share browser. :)

A few comments in case you run out of bugs:

Mounts with long labels, such as for example "sftp for
christian on" lead to quite a bit of padding. Maybe you
could enable wrap-width on the cell renderer?

As a small note, I find it a little confusing that Show Panel and View
Icons options are in the preferences and the View menu under different
names. You might want to either adjust the naming or remove the two
options from the pref dialogue. But that's a minor issue really.

If you happen to be bored, it would be nice if Giggolo used my default
toolbar icon style and "Connect" was "important".
