But tree view is also tedious, if you have ugly lots of folders in deep 

Usually you have several 'nervous knots' or highway crossings or hotspots, from 
where you can get to your daily work fast. For example, some coding folder, 
then your music folders, and your real-world office shit. It would be much 
better to go straight to such a nervous know (may we call it 'ganglion' ?) than 
to scroll through a large treeview and brain-process many folder names until 
you find what you need.

Then you need bookmarks, or even better (because faster!) you set up bookmark 
icons which you can click in the toolbar and you could assign a keyboard 
shortcut too. (by now, only misused device icons are possibly, but this works 

I set up all my ganglions as such icons. I simply use colored squares because i 
can remember colors well. Right now i happen to use krusader and konqueror 
again, temporarily, to see what they implemented and how good they are, 
meanwhile; and although konq for example has treeview, and both have bookmarks, 
switching away from my customized gcmd causes my workflow immediately to slow 
down by at least 200%. They just don't have _that_, big colored teletubby
