Exactly, because of user demand.  New window behavior as opposed to tab
or pane setups is retrograde evolution.

How about some user demand for flexibility of choice?  The "open in a
broswer window" is not acceptable.  I want the *folder* to open *in
the same window*, not in a browswer window.  How about some user
demand for the GNOME developers to stop screwing with fundamental user
interface design every single release?

I used to be of the opinion that GNOME was "the one" -- both
technically superior to KDE (it is) and philosophically superior (now
I'm doubtful).  GNOME is rapidly losing my respect as it's become less
and less easy to use (ironically) because I can't make it do anything
other than what's in The Vision(tm) of whomever is making these design
decisions.

Linus is probably right, I should switch to KDE.
