I have been thinking for a while how we can improve the Places panel in 
Dolphin. One of the things that are quite obvious to me is the waste of space 
that having 4 "recently accessed" entries produces.

My proposal is to replace these 4 entries with a timeline similar to what can 
be found in Active:


Do not mind the design, we will have to design something specific for Dolphin.

What matters from the screenshot is the concept of having a navigable way of 
browsing files based on a timeline from the very beginning.

Done this, we will be able to replace those 4 entries by 1, making room for 
more awesome like "PC near you".

What do you think? If you like the idea I can cook a mockup or even better we 
can ask some usability guru to do it and think about it.

Cheers !
