I meant turning it off if one doesn't like it.

However, thinking a bit more about it I'm not totally sure if disabling this 
feature is necessary at all. What I want is a view where i only see my 
images without any other information covering parts of the image (like the 
infobox). But this new navigation widget would probably (hopefully) not 
cover anything of the picture but just add widgets to the viewer window 
which is probably a good idea (as jedd mentioned gwenview has a quite good 
UI, have a look at it).

Some time ago people were talking about this feature. However it seems 
nobody had time or interest in implementing it :-(

If every day just had a few more hours... ;-)
