Something that will be super useful and speed up navigating the file system tremendously is making it possible just start typing on the keyboard and the file and folder list you are currently in will automatically be filtered to only show items that contain the text you are typing. Everything else should stay just the same.

On the similar Windows version "Total Commander" I do this all the time and can navigate extremely quickly. To cancel the filter I press Escape in order to show all items again - and the filter is of course reset every time you go to a new filter.

I realize this should be a feature you can easily turn on and off since some might want to retain current behaviour where you type a command when you start typing.
