Our office does a lot of web design and everyone agrees that this would be an awesome feature!

If there could be a toggle button on the main tool bar that puts Filezilla Client into SDT (Simultaneous Directory Traversal) mode which means that if you change directory in the local window, it will look for a directory with the same name on the remote side. If it finds one it automatically opens it.

If you are in a directory of the same name in both local and remote windows and you move back a directory in the local window then it also moves back a directory on the remote side too.

It would be great to have it have this functionality in both the remote window and local window... I described it above with only the local window firing this special functionality but that was just to keep the wording simple. It should definitely be turned on for both given the toggle is on.

There should also be an option in settings that lets you say whether the check for whether you are in a folder of the same name is case sensitive or not... with the default being 'not'.

This feature would save us a TONNE of time over the course of a month with the number of times we have to click 'includes' on both, then '..' on both, then 'admin' on both etc. while simply trying to update files quickly that are located in different directory without using the tree view.
