The old behaviour was one of the power features of Nautilus for a person
that uses keyboard navigation. The new behaviour is dramatically
different and frankly doesn't work as well for many use cases.
Lets say I want to quickly navigate to
1. I switch to Nautilus which shows my home folder
A. With the old behaviour: c ENTER m ENTER m ENTER __i ENTER
B. With the new behaviour: __init__.py, and it shows me tons of __init__.py
located in my home folder and all subdirectories
2. Trying to use the new behaviour and still achieve my goal I try this:
i) module/__init__.py, no hit
ii) module __init__.py, no hit
So, currently I see no way of navigating to the intended file without
alot of hassle or reaching for the mouse. A big regression for me.

GNOME removed type-ahead find in Nautilus 3.6, not without
Now when you type in a Nautilus window, Nautilus immediately performs
a search in the current directory and all its subdirectories. I
personally find this annoying. If I want to search, I'll click the
search icon. Often I'm looking at a long directory listing and simply
want to jump to a certain point in it, and type-ahead find works great
Would Ubuntu consider patching type-ahead find back in?
