A user friendly folder/path listing often found on internet forums or online listings. each word in the list is a clickable link that will take you back to that page.

The breadcrumb is a means of getting back to previous pages without having to use your browsers back button. It is usefull on some websites where previous pages have expired and you cannot access them with the browsers back button.

the term breadcrumb is taken from the childrens story Hansel and Gretel in which the children dropped a trail of bread crumbs so that they could find their way back "home".
//example of a breadcrumb

//this link is for a php class for displaying a simple 'folder' breadcrumb on a website

Derived from the term "bread", used in place of the word "money". Bread crumbs are small change, ie. quarters, nickels, dimes, and pennies.
