Change folder on server automatically

One of the most time saving features of CuteFTP was that it would automatically change the folder on the server as I changed it on the client.

For example, if I started off in a local directory called c:\Users\Noah\Sites\\ and remote directory / and I double clicked the local CSS folder to go to c:\Users\Noah\Sites\\CSS, CuteFTP would automatically try to visit /CSS/ and from there if I double clicked the directory Admin to go to c:\Users\Noah\Sites\\CSS\Admin, CuteFTP would automatically try to visit /CSS/Admin.

CuteFTP works this both ways too. If I then decided to move up one directory on the server so I'm in /CSS/ (instead of /CSS/Admin) it would move me up one directory to c:\Users\Noah\Sites\\CSS\ (from c:\Users\Noah\Sites\\CSS\Admin\). It was smart too -- it only did this if the directories were named the same; if I was in c:\Users\Noah\Sites\\CSS\ locally but /SomeOtherDirectory/ remotely and browsed up a directory remotely to / it would _not_ go up a directory locally.

This feature saves TONS of time for web development.

Please, I would like this feature also.
When holding down [Ctrl] key and opening a folder.

How to dev idea:

When open folder on Local, if control key down,
and, if same folder name exists on server, open that folder on server too.
or, opening "..", go up a folder on Server too.

  • I'd hope this to be very easy to code into filezilla.
