Official Gloobus description:

Excruciated by the painful loading time to see if you're dealing with the right file? Hail to Gloobus, for tis' is the Holy Grail of preview! Designed as an extendable, standards-compliant previewer , so that it plays nice with Gnome and can be easily extended to support any kind of file, Gloobus enables instant previewing of your files, without even having to open them. Hit space, and BANG, here's the content of your file, displayed as it would if it was opened.

Using Gloobus is very simple. Just select the file in Nautilus and hit the <SPACE> key.
