Thanks for the feedback all. 

-We can rework the name to make more sense, perhaps panel preview.

-I like the glass effect too.

-We will investigate this more in terms of being able to select items from the preview. For
now this is to help with usability in the manner that Jessica mentioned.

Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks You and Best Regards,

Hi Sonny,
I have 3 comments on it.

First, I like the way this lets me drill down without actually clicking. It is easier to quickly
browse around the detail panels from one place. Users complain about getting lost in too many
levels and having to click too much, and this combats that.

Second, I'm not sure "history view" describes it. To me, the feature is looking into the future
-- what would happen if I clicked this breadcrumb?
-- rather than the past. I'd call it a preview, or "instant details" view, or something like
that.

Third, I agree with David that seeing the buttons in the popup is confusing. Users will expect
to be able to click them. Is there a way to erase them before display?
