Description:

Navigation buttons, path-bar, reload and stop buttons are placed on the new Navigation Bar.

Navigation Bar supports both auto-completion and clickable-path feature.

The path-bar has got clickable path.

All parent folders are represented by buttons in the path-bar. The current folder which is represented by a textbox. You can click any button to change to that directory DIRECTLY.

The path-bar has got two modes :
1] Clickable Mode : All parent folders are represented by Buttons while the current folder is represented by a TEXT BOX.
2] Edit Mode : After clicking on the Text Box you can now edit the entire address and can make use of the auto-completion feature just like the normal location-bar.

You can drag and drop these parent-folder buttons into the Tab Bar to open new tabs with that location. Right-clicking this button will open a context menu which will cantain a list of sub-directories. Select any of the sub-directories to change to that directory.

The drop down menu is having a tree-menu structure. By default it can show four “Recent Locations” items.

The “Find Box” is for finding items in the currently selected item in the tree-menu.
For example, you select “Bookmarks” form the tree-menu. Then type the text which you want to search in “Bookmarks”. Then those locations in the Bookmarks sub-menu matching the text will get highlighted .

The reload and stop buttons can be moved next to the navigation buttons. Clicking on the "Location :" label can also make the path-bar switch to edit mode.

The first button is a special one. It also contains the root folder “/ ” button. But this button is highlighted as a separate button when we hover over it. After clicking this button the entire path is in edit mode. This means that when the current folder is the root folder “/ ” , the entire path is in edit mode.

 great idea

and it's a very polished looking design. Would it be a good idea to be able to toggle the "Location' to "Search" and "Filter" so only one bar is needed? Useful? Confusing?

How about just putting / on the other side of the button?

like so: (pipe (|) designates button borders) /|home/|user/|downloads/|currentfolder/|


With currentfolder being the editbar.

I second that. Not only does it look more natural, but it allows the "/" folder to be a separate button.

Overall, this is a wonderful, simple, should-already-be-available idea. Great thinking. :D

 vista...

ok. So, when does we get something which is totally something different from Windows Vista?

Doing better what they do at Microsoft is not real innovativity. We need something of our own. I agree that for beginners using computer this sort of system which is copied from Gnome/Vista is good, or not, and I agree that it might make browsing folders easier but might not be the easiest way. Let's think about something of really new and fun way to browse filesystem(s).

If it's a good idea, who cares where it comes from?

Actually I had the same idea, but I've never used vista, nor am I interested in it. This didn't say what would happen when you hit backspace. I would have it do one of 2 things. One setting would have it delete a whole button, while the other setting would have it delete only one letter.

Well, at least this idea what is already implented on dolphin does not come from MS. MS copied the idea from GNOME and they might have got it somewhere else. Who cares? Those who want to give a credit to them who deserves it. Microsoft does not and that is sure.

There's soomething like that on Vista?
If so, maybe someone in Microsoft uses the brain... ;)

(I haven't tested Vista, I think there's no reason to spend my time testing a software and then pay to use it)

I found this feature really innovative in GNOME. As far as I know Vista doesn't have it and even if it does it took the idea from GNOME. As far as I can see there is absolutely no problem borrowing ideas from other programs if they work and are also open source.

Rather than having whole words as buttons I think that if you click on the / then that should be a button (delete everything following the slash) and if you click on any word then you should be able to type there

 Few improvements

 
 by 5er on: Jul 20 2007

1st screenshot:
I had a similar idea of combining text-box and breadcrumb buttons. My idea is that it's an edit box, but a right click will take you where you clicked. A longer right click would open a dropdown menu like in dolphin. User should be able to change the rightclick actions to middle mouse button. I'd like to see kde4 user interface to use more mouse buttons.
2nd screenshot:
That's like seeing same content in same window twice.
3rd screenshot:
I like how it is in dolphin better (a whole button for root) it's easier to aim this way, but when there's no space in the location bar, it could get replaced by just /
If my idea of combined edit-box and breadcrumb buttons will be used, It will have to always be just /

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
