I would like to not have to "Press any key" after every
comparison (because of the new floating status dialogbar).

I would like it to just go away when the comparison is
over.

Perhaps an option, like the option to suppress the
splash screen -- a new option to suppress the "Press
Any Key" prompt ?

    Quess what. Laoran did it first that way. I requested that
    bar to stay. Just disappearing dialogs are not good, "what
    did there read?!".

    Option for it is ok, default is that bar does not disappear.

    The problem is that after user closes this dialog, there is
    now way to see these stats again unless rescanning. So we
    need new menitem "Show compare stats" or something into
    View-menu.

    And then these stats must be "live" i.e. show current
    situation, not situation of last rescan.

    I think it would be nifty if, after the comparison finishes,
    instead of having a button "Press any key", instead the
    dialog become a docked dialogbar (where the user can close
    it if she wants the screen space back).

    This is real problem now with browsing folders in
    non-recursive compare. Small folders are compared from cache
    so compares take < second, but you have to close this pane
    every time...

    Increasing priority.

    Oops. Forgot this item, as more discussion was in another
    RFE item.

    Anyway, this is now fixed, mentioned patch is applied. So
    closing.
