Comment 140 for bug 386150

I dislike the idea of a switching button, it seems indecisive.

If you take a look at the explorer breadcrumbs link i posted previously the
idea is that there is no need for a toggle button, click a location to go
back/forward, double click to convert to text, arrows in between to allow
branching from previous directory.

I do like the idea of moving Computer/Home to the Side Pane though, lots of
space eaten up needlessly otherwise.

I always find I use Up and Back more than I use forward though, might just
be me though :D
