I don't really like the concept of file pickers at all, but as far as
they go, the GNOME one is probably one of the best ones I've used.

I really wouldn't care much about the results of the Google search

complaints then their praise. I wonder how many people took the time to
thank Federico Mena-Quintero for adding the input field by default.
