There is an option to make the previews the same size as your icons. IMO 
this should be default behavior, as to me, the different sizes looks 
messy and gives a very bad first impression to new users. (and is part 
of the problem here too i think)

 I think the reasoning was that the default size is following a 
thumbnail standard that i hadnt even heard about, and much less care 
about, at least as long as im using a general browser, and not a photo 
handling program like apples iPhoto.
