Bug Description

Many web browsers have now began dimming less relevant parts of the URL, such as the protocol, subdomain, path, and query string.
I propose we have an option/setting/feature that does the same Nautilus and Gtk file dialogs. Dim the the file extension.

Not everyone likes this dimming effect. If it is implemented, please make it optional!

@ginggs, modify the Open File and Save File dialogs in Wine to dim the file extension. See screenshot.
