Another WinSCP-using newcomer suggestion. Most of Windows (7/Vista) users are used to having the path displayed in a breadcrumb style so they can be able to click in each part of it to navigate up/down the folder structure. WinSCP provides that, websites too, the locationbar firefox addon three:

I guess it is widely accepted as a really user-friendly feature. Besides, the user has to click only once this way rather than two the way it is now.

Thanx for considering this one.

Would have been great if Trac had a voting system. I +1 this.

I think the Windows Explorer breadcrumb is done right. Click on any ancestor and it navigates there. Click the arrow next to any folder name and it shows a drop-down of its children. When you click on the empty space in it, it transforms into a textbox with the path selected for quick copying (also the breadcrumb has a handy right-click menu to copy the path without transforming). It would be great if Cyberduck navigation bar is a breadcrumb like that.

When you click the down arrow on the Explorer breadcrumb, it lists some sort of intelli-history. I don't know how that works, it shows parts of my navigation history probably based on some heuristics. But I don't expect that! I'd be happy if Cyberduck can just show the full history on drop-down of breadcrumb.
