Here are my 0.03$:

--invoking of quick search
combination <Ctrl><Shift><letter> can beat with desktop acceleratin keys (especially in KDE)
 I would like to set up my own.
 I would like to simple press <Ctrl> to quick search appear
 and THEN type letters

You can't simply use CTRL for invoking quick search, for it is used in many shortcuts:

   CTRL+F    Connect to FTP server
   CTRL+SHIFT+F    Disconnect from FTP server
   CTRL+R    Refresh the active file list

   CTRL+T    Multi-Rename-Tool
   CTRL+U    Exchange directories

   CTRL+C  Copy files to clipboard
   CTRL+X  Cut files to clipboard
   CTRL+V  Paste from clipboard to current dir

--F2 for quick file renaming
 (you can use yet existing input line ;-)

IMHO GC shortcuts should stay as much compatible with Windows Commander ones as possible. The latter one uses SHIFT+F6 for that purpose ;o)

--option to hide upper taskbar, bottom button bar and input line.
 I personally prefer to view files as much as possible.
Already in TODO

--hide some columns
 I personally dislike the third column with file extension names
 It's just wasting place.

Good idea. But it's not wasting place as you can sort files by their ext using this column. Alternatively I would propose two options for displaying filenames (configurable in options dialog): 1. display complete filename+ext across 2 columns (name+ext) - you got plenty of place for filename this way
2. display filename and ext in appriopriate coloumns (name, ext).

--shortcut to gnome mime-type manager
just a simple a item in context menu. Extension of selected file could be send to mime-type manager

Agreed. And, of course, a button in the toolbar for ones using right mouse button for selecting files.
