omigosh~ the web browser has been my last great hold out of non KDE/Qt apps in daily use. I think that is no more...

Any elaboration? No mention in commit messages. How exactly does the feature work? Thank you for the commit digest. More elaboration would be welcome.

The Commit Digest stories on the Dot offer highlights from the Commit Digest, and a link (well, 2 links usually) to the actual Commit Digest.

In this case...
- the Commit Digest link on the Dot opens the Commit Digest page, which can be searched for "terminal".
- that search turns up more information on this feature. The fix will be implemented in 4.9.0. Frank Reininghaus made the commit and thanked Jekyll Wu.
- there is also a link to Bug 156732 where there is considerable information about the feature and what it took to get it implemented.

What further elaboration do you suggest?

Great to see some improvements in Dolphin, but shall we see any year a browsing history? Will we be able to click the back arrow, hold and see a menu showing the folders we have visited, and choose the one 6 steps back instead needing to click the back arrow 6 times? I know that this is a vanguard feature, only very advanced file managers have it, such as the file manager that my first computer had--Windows 95. What an advanced piece of software, eh?
XD

Excuse the sarcasm, but shouldn't basic features that everybody needs every day be priority?

Regards

I use Dolphin a lot. It has never occurred to me to have a file browsing history such as you describe. Besides, clicking step-wise back through the history makes a lot of sense.

I question your assertion that everybody needs this every day. You apparently need it, but you're not "everybody". If you made a feature request, it is possible that other people might see some value and support your request.

Disparaging applications is not the best way to get what you want.
