The installation of GWorkspace adds a library with some header files, and one named browser2.h.

Is anyone knows what is the class browser2 ? Is it the main browser of GWorkspace ?

Yes. GWLib contains all browser classes, that is: Browser2, BCell, BMatrix, 
BColumn, BIcon, BIconLabel and BNameEditor.
Browser2 was written (at the beginning) because some changes in NSBrowser's -tile 
didn't permit anymore to have fixed-width columns. Then, I've added many other 
features; In -initWithBasePath:visibleColumns:styleMask:delegate: you can choose 
if the browser must have or not the icons path, if the cells have or not an icon, 
if the columns accept dnd, etc. (see Preferences->Browser in GWorkspace).
If you want to reuse it, you should take a look also in 
GWorkspace/ViewersWindow (the window that contains the browser and the shelf) 
and in GWorkspace/Shelf.

If you don't need things like icons in the browser cells, you could try to use 
the new browser I've written for GWNet. It is in 
GWNet/Viewers/Common/AsyncBrowser. The AsyncBrowser directory contains all you 
need to use it; no other class is needed, you must only write a delegate. (look 
in GWNet/Viewers/SMBViewer or FTPViewer for examples of delegate)
