Description

In the last version I used (v2.x I think) there was a file menu option to enable/disable multiple connections. It looks like this disappeared in favor of a simpler interface in 3.x but I would like to explain why it is an important feature:

When I want to quickly transfer 1-3 text files under 10kb, I want to do so QUICKLY. I have noticed in my case having to wait for 3 new connections to be established with the server is MUCH SLOWER than just transferring these files one-by-one using the same connection.

Conversely, when I know I need to download a directory full of hundreds to thousands of these tiny files, it is fastest to do so with multiple connections.

I would like to be able to toggle multiple connections using a toolbar button, if possible in this v3.x.

Too confusing for most users. Use the Site Manager.

Thanks for your consideration.

The Site Manager is between 3-6 clicks away; I need something easier to get to.

I will stick with FileZilla v2. Thanks.
