Quick view of any folder's contents via a browser Web Browsers
I'm not sure if this tip has been submitted a hundred times already, but just in case it hasn't, here it is. A really simple and fast way of viewing the contents of a folder sitting on your desktop or shown in the finder is to drag the folder onto an open browser window. As far as I know this works with all X browsers.

[Editor's note: I found this hint regarding navigating your hard drive with a browser, but nothing about dragging and dropping a folder...]

This hint does not work with Navigator (a.k.a. Chimera) and Internet Explorer. It does work with Mozilla and OmniWeb.
