There isn’t much to look at apart from the above screenshot but if you want you can check out the commit in the Chromium Code repository it’s here. If you’re currently into the Dev side of things there’s a how-to on getting the new Files.app running here just use the switch ‘–file-manager-new-ui‘.

What do you think of the improved Files.App?
