+1 for this request. A search/filter box in the local/remote panes would be a real time saver and a good product differentiator. (I've only found this feature in CyberDuck thus far.)

I'd recommend either highlighting as suggested above, or shrinking what's shown in the file list. Imagine browsing a large FTP site with hundreds of files in a directory. You see a file list like:
abc123
abcdef
def456
xyz123

...and typing in a filter box "123" and having the list immediately filter to just those files that contain 123.

The current method of filtering is hidden too deep in the menu structure and requires too many "clicks" when you just need a quick filter on the current session.

"Because of a list of folders that is immense, on the Local site, when I click on a "j", to move to the first folder that start with a j, the tool's position stays. On most Windows application, when one punches a key the explorer moves to the first folder/file that starts with that letter, if it is found. It would be great to add this function to the local site." -- #8364
