The browser panel doesn't show all the drives I can connect to. Actually it fails to show a drive I pluged in as a network drive.
As you can see in the screenshot, the "SIG" folder (which is a folder on the macOS company network) doesn't appear in the browser panel.
However, I can have access to that folder if I use the classic Add vector/raster layer tool.

I think that if we want the browser panel become the first place to add layers from (with the Data Source Manager restructuring in QGIS 3), it must be possible to show all the network and remote drivers in the tree (and not only what is accessible locally).
For what I can see, it's the only dialog in QGIS where only local drivers are accessible.

In both qgis 2.18 and qgis 3.4 running on Windows10, I use this workaround.
Right-click on the Favourites item in the brower panel and then it says : add folder. This open a windows browser panel where I have access to all the netwerk folders and I can get add them to the browser panel as a Favourite.
