Suggested feature: bread crumb and browser navigation between pages

I have a feature suggestion for the navigation inside the jAlbum client: You already provide "bread crumbs" of the folder tree at the top of the thumbnail window (see attachment). If I double-click on any tree part, it opens an Explorer window to that folder, which is nice.

However, navigating back and forth is cumbersome. What I propose is two things:

1) Use that bread crumb folder structure and when SINGLE-clicked, jump back to that folder. When double-clicking, you can continue to open an Explorer window to that folder.

2) Allow standard browser back and forth navigating: ALT/OPTION-LEFT or ALT/OPTION-Right should go back / forward to where you just were. I have programmed that into my trackball. A single button click would get me back to the last or to the next folder where I just was.

See attached screen shot for explanation.

Thanks for considering this! - Jurgen

Not a terrible idea, but single-click folder navigation is already available in the panel on the left.

jAlbum 34 supports ALT+left or right key to navigate back and forth. It also supports the back button on mice that supports it.

I think implementing single-click navigation in the address bar of jAlbum is bit more involved as it may easily interfere with editing paths. I know how they've resolved this in Windows, but that requires quite a bit of coding.

Not on my system, neither the keyboard nor the mouse buttons do that. Is there an option to enable this? I have version 32, was this perhaps implemented in a later version?
