Nautilus patched adds the UP button and a toggle button for the location bar. The keyboard shortcut Ctrl+L has been replaced by F12 and works in toggle mode (You don’t need to press Escape anymore!)
Some other versions add more buttons like the REFRESH, HOME or COMPUTER buttons… The “Search” text has been removed.

There’s a customize GUI under Edit -> Preferences -> Toolbar tab.
