With SMB for Fuse you can seamlessly browse your network neighbourhood as were it on your own filesystem.
Instead of mounting one Samba share at a time, you mount all workgroups, hosts and shares at once. Only when you're accessing a share a connection is made.
Here are some key features of "SMB for FUSE":
Browsing workgroups/hosts and shares from any application
Streaming of files (movies/music)
Browsing the network is fast because all hosts and shares are cached
Other solutions as GnomeVFS or KIO slaves provide a similar solution, but have a few disadvantages:
Programs need to be rewritten to make them network transparent.
KIO Slaves cannot stream files making movie/music playing over LAN impossible.
Gnome VFS just is unstable on my system, although is offers streaming.
Automounting shares is possible, but you cannot see more than 8 at a time, because NT Workstation limits the number of connections it's also a lot slower.
FUSE >= 1.0

What's New in This Release:
