Implement typeahead for file navigation
In view of the fact that the last issue requesting this feature was abruptly and stubbornly closed, I'm adding a new issue with confidence that the majority of Nautilus users share my belief in regards to this matter.
Users can not properly navigate in a directory with a considerable amount of entries. Using search is slow and unnatural, especially in cases where a remote directory is navigated.
Typeahead file/directory selection is desired, where upon typing a sequence of characters, the first entry matching that sequence is to be selected.
