dont require username in site manager

First of all FileZilla rocks. Its the replacement to
WS_FTP LE that i've been looking for for our public
computer labs.

I would be nice for FileZilla to not require a username
in the site manager. When you connect to a server, have
it check to see if there is a username entered, and if
not, open a dialog box that allows you to enter the
username and password.

A good example, and reason for this functionality: A
lab environment where multiple users use the same
computer. You could use the same .xml settings file for
every user, and have the program ask for the username
and password when necessary. As it is right now, you
would have to put a wrapper script on the executable
that would parse the .xml settings file and enter the
correct username into all the sites.

It would also allow you to connect to the same server
without having to alter the username, or creating a
duplicate site.

You would still be able to enter a username if you
wanted, but if you didn’t enter one, the program would
ask you for it when you connected to a site. Basically
the same functionality that you have for the password
field, but apply that to the username field as well.

+1 on this feature request.

I raised the priority a little but just to indicate that this is something that could relatively easy be implemented, but still gives a large benefit to public user groups like universities.

+1 for this feature. I have shared computers at home and at work that could both benefit from this feature.
