@javisol: Not really. Not if you're running something other than Nautilus, that is.

and with either of 'gnome-open .' or nautilus we can peep into sub folders with their url given in place of '.' and get back to our work at the terminal :)

@pahnin I didn't vote you either positive or negative. I vote positive when the command is useful and unknown for me and negative for spammers
