Small features request


It is a great program and I am buying it. It is the only one I could find that reliably works with both 256 bit AES encryption and my third party hardware token-based password manager, the interface is clear and in general it is a nice product.

I would like to ask you about a couple of features to add.

1. I would like to see a way to tell that the connection is indeed secure. There should be a lock icon, green light, or something, on the bottom status bar, with the information about protocol used and key strength, when you hover a mouse pointer over it. Right now, I have to scroll the log to the authentication phase to see that indeed my server connected with my intended encryption method. It is not very good, it should be clearly visible that connection is secure, and one should know what protocol is in use.

2. I would like to have a Crtl-R shortcut bound to Directory Refresh. Right now, you can only refresh by clicking apropriate button, but keybord shortcut would be handy, as many FTP managers use Ctrl-R for manual refresh and one gets used to it, and then misses this shortcut.

3. A button for "disconnect" is not self-explanatory. I had to hover my mouse over the buttons for actually find which one disconnects. Maybe it should be a bit more descriptive, like, maybe with a red X or something... This is not a problem, but rather a suggestion for a small improvement. As well, maybe "disconnect" in a right click on a connection tab menu would as well be useful.

Anyway, it is a great proggy even with the above small nuances and I am happy I could finally find if.

Thank you!
