The complaint I've most frequently heard about spatial Nautilus is with the number of windows it opens. Ars technica dug into spatial browsing, and points out a few tips that make using it :
In particular, make note of shift-double-left-clicking or double-middle clicking on folders, which closes the parent when you open a child. Also, note the parent hierarchy button in the lower left window.
These two features make spatial browsing much easier for me, so much so that I prefer it to browser mode. That wasn't the case when I first starting using spatial with no knowledge of these features.
