Does this actually serve a useful purpose? Do any of you use this feature? I use Back instead. --Cúthalion 21:36, 2 April 2007 (MDT)

  • Breadcrumb is a widely implementend feature (this alone is not a proof of usefulness, I agree).
  • Contrary to the physical world, one does not necessarily enter a place by the main entrance. Here, a breadcrumb is useful
  • Finally, a breadcrumb helps people create their own mental map of how a site is. Breadcrumbs are a great ergonomic improvement.
I case you are wondering, the answer is Yes :-) I do not use it myself because I already know the site and do not use it much, but then, I am not representative (nor is anyone posting on this talk page, I think).

Actually, I use this feature very often when I arrive at a page from Recent Changes. This feature helps me a great deal even though I cannot say how useful it is to a non advanced user/sysop. --Green Dragon 09:39, 5 April 2007 (MDT)
I suppose if it helps some power users and doesn't hurt newbies (and may help them), there's no harm in having it. --Cúthalion 14:07, 12 April 2007 (MDT)
