Except that the spatial mode is supposed to be better for doing file
management tasks, such as copying files to other places, whereas the
browser mode is supposed to be better for finding files that you're not
really sure where they are, so you can go into folder A, oh, the file
isn't there, click the back button, go to folder B, and so on.
