Not picky. When you reduce sizes, everything becomes unaligned.
You already had the good idea to align labels to the right side.

The name must reflect the usage.

Would be better to set it dynamically to browser's height.
Anyway, the current limit isn't working (only works when using the resize

You're building an UI, not printing raw data.
Think about people with long and/or many subdirs.
Just suppress anything before the last '/' for the item entry and keep the 
link as is.

We need tests with some more buggier (IE <<) and some more pickier (webkit
