CIFS offers poor directory traversing performance, and there have been 
reports of large libraries taking minutes to open.  Metadata is not used 
in browse mode.  Multiple root directories do not get merged while in 
browse mode.

In general, there's just a lot of things that behave differently in 
browse mode than they do in normal operation, and somehow a lot of users 
manage to enable it without knowing.  If you know what it means, and 
understand what to expect, it's fine.  However most don't, and so it 
just ends up leading to confusion.
