Add a 'Go to Parent Folder' button to the toolbar

This hardly seems necessary. Just add the Path button to the Finder using "Customize Toolbar." Click and hold on the resulting new Path button in the Finder toolbar and all parent folders appear, from which you can then simply pick any of these in a snap.

Or press the command key and click the titlebar. Does the same as adding the show path button. I use it allot.

This also works in Safari. I find it's the best way to get back to the start of a site.

Why are so many Apple users unwilling to accept that MacOX usability can be improved? Why use 2 or 3 actions to do something that can be done with one?
