Some useful default ignores

Now that we have gitignore-like ignore rules it would make sense to add some useful default ignores there by default (for users who did not add anything), like:
*.crdownload # Google chrome downloads
*.partial # internet explorer… not sure about the case
… # maybe others, but I don’t have any ideas right now

Maybe ignores should not be populated out of the box, but I think we can create a database which can be used as a guidelines for new people. Some things from top of my head:

Will extend this list as I find more files which can be ignored safely.

# Linux file managers.
.directory

# Linux file systems
lost+found


# macOS related files.
.DS_Store
._*
*.download
