Nautilus is a network user environment that integrates access to files, applications, media, Internet-based services and the Web. Features include:
- Built-in viewer components for displaying file contents and quick access to the launch of file editors.
- Content and attribute-based "virtual folders" that free users from a strict file hierarchy.
- URL-based naming scheme allows local and Web viewing.
- Icon views that represent the contents of files: image, text, music, and so on.
- Multiple user levels to offer an optimized user interface for both novices and experts.
- File emblems, directory notes, and other tools to customize a file system.
- Zooming user interface that shows more detail at higher zoom levels.
