Will Thunar be able to complete directories/filenames (nearly
automatically) when you enter
them in the input field? In the shell (bash, sh, ...) this usually works
by typing <TAB>. This
would be a great help as entering and searching a directory/file was
much faster, then.
Alternatively, providing an autocompletion feature like it is used in
most common webbrowsers
would be great Example: When you enter the first letters of a website
you normally get the part
of the history which matches your input in a dropdown list. A history in
this case is not needed
but displaying all direct parent "children" would be great.
In most cases I prefer shell-like browsing combined with a filesystem
- but with a detailled list
with information instead if large icons.
