Description

FileZilla = AWESOME! This is by far the best freebie
FTP client out there!

As a new user, the toolbar buttons seem a little less
than ideally situated. Plus, the mouseover description
only shows in the status bar (at the bottom of the
screen), so it's hard to notice down there.

For starters, I would love to see ToolTip style help text,
where it would "popup", ala microsoft. Another
possibility may be to show the help text to the right of
the buttons (there's plenty of room). Yet another option
may be to place the buttons at the bottom of the screen
(like WSFTP), where they're closer to the status bar...

I'd also love to see them rearranged (or rearrangeable by
the end user). My preferred order would be to move
the "view options" (show local, show remote, show
queue, show messages) to the end of the bar, just
before help, so that the connection-related options were
all together. Then move the disconnect/reconnect
options to the beginning, just after the site-manager
button. Here's my complete preferred order:

Site manager
Disconnect
Reconnect
---------
Refresh
Process
Cancel
---------
Local treeview
Remote treeview (and use an 'R', rather than an 'F')
Queue
Message Log
---------
Help

FileZilla 3 shows tooltips "ala Microsoft" now. So all that is remaining in here is a (possibly) better default arrangement of the toolbar icons, as well as the possiblility to re-arrange those buttons, which is not possible yet in FileZilla 3.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
