Yesterday I brought up the question if there could be a change to the address bar of the next version of Internet Explorer. Since I’m using Windows Vista I’m very happy with the new view of the path in explorer.exe. It is very easy to navigate to parent folders by simple clicking on the part of the name. If you click on the small arrow you’ll get a list of folders that are located in the same folder.
Using a good URL allows me to guess other URLs:
- mydomain/en/products/software/office > might show all office products
- mydomain/en/products/software > shows an overview of all software
- mydomain/en/products > is the main page for products
- mydomain/de > maybe exists, too, the German version of the site
In Internet Explorer it could appear like this:
Maybe we need to add a new meta tag for this, could be a reference to the sitemap.xml which then gets downloaded like the favicon.
