Starting at 1.8, there's a standalone Quantum GIS Browser application on Windows. I am unable to locate that app on Mac. There is a 'Browser' panel for Mac but its functionality is limited.

QGIS Browser.app is located in QGIS.app/Contents/MacOS/bin. For ease of launching, make a symlink or Finder alias to it.
