It would be nice if the size of the editor was used when opening new windows instead of the size of the overall window. To put it another way, the editing view should be the same size whether then new window contains a file browser or not.
That?s it. Thanks.

I am not sure if this conflicts with your suggestion or not, but I greatly prefer when the overall window stays the same size when opening the file browser and not push the overall size out and to the right, as TextMate currently functions.
I didn’t even know you could open a file browser within an existing window. I suppose in that case, the window size can stay the same. I’ll never do it, so I don’t care. :-)
To me it makes more sense to consider the overall window one unit, not a separate window with a file browser adjacent to the editor window. Perhaps my preference doesn't conflict with yours after all, you would just have to close the file browser first before hitting new file I guess, but I think they do, you are pretty much saying the file browser and the editor should be separate. I prefer them as one.
No, I’m fine with them being in a single window. (In fact, I used the Project+ plug-in with TM1 to achieve this.) All I’m saying that that the size of a *new* window should be determined by the size of the last used editor, not the size of the last used window.
As it is now, if I’m working in a window with a single file open (no browser) and it’ll fit 80 characters, then I open a directory in a new window, the editor portion of the new window will only fit 49 characters or so. It should fit 80. The reverse should also be true. If I’m working on a project (with a file browser) and the editor portion will fit 80 characters, ⌘N should not give me a new editor that fits 112.
