Memorize the display preferences for each folder
I have two different displays:
In the images folder: I like to see a lot of the content, I find it convenient. In other folders: I prefer to view the contents by list so that I can sort them easily.
The problem, you've probably already understood that when I close my windows and go back to my "pictures"folder, Nautilus doesn't remember my specific display for this folder anymore and it will apply the last display I used in other folders.
