    File browser suggestions

    None of this requieres any serverside changes:

    • Enable Drag-and-drop from inside the file browser. The other way around works already.
    • Implement some sort of picture viewer or/and the ability to doubleclick the file and be downloaded and executed automatically (inside some temp folder/specific folder)
    • View images directly (not that important if the above is implemented.

    If you think that this might be a security problems (after all you could upload executables which contain viruses or trojans) then this should behaviour should be set to off by default. Or make it only possible for a bunch of file extensions like mp3, jpeg, png and so one, you probably get the idea.

    Would be possible, but requires you to register a shell-extension on your system. If I remember correctly, the devs worked on something a (long) while ago.

    I fully agree on the image preview stuff... The key issue why people are still using image hosting sites, dropbox or even the TeamSpeak avatar feature to show images to others is that there's no image preview function in the file browser. This has to be implemented. Just download images to the cache and automatically wipe files older than x days.

    Didn't know that. Would a simple doubleclick and automatic download to a temp folder be working?
    The main usage flaw is, that I have to selected the download folder, then use the Explorer to go to the folder to get the files. But most files I only need to open once, so a temp folder with auto-download would be completely fine for me.

    1. As ScP said, Drag and Drop of remote files is only possible using a shell extension. This if pretty much a flaw in Windows, as quite a lot of applications use such extensions or would have a feature related to this if there wasn't the need for an extension.

    Not sure how you mean this, but posting the images in channels is still too complicated even with preview. One should be able to drag and drop images to the chat (confirmation message maybe).

    Filezilla can do it in both ways, so a shell extension shouldn't be hard to do.
