Speed up navigation in Finder column view

I found a post at The MacTipper regarding fast navigation with the Finder. Mainly it talks about the different behavior wether a folder is selected (indicated by a white arrow) or wether you are active in the whole column (indicated by a outlined arrow). Selection of a folder (without selecting the first item inside the folder) can be done by clicking on a folder or hitting the Tab key (⇥) when navigation around the columns. When a folder is selected, jumping to a folder using the alphanumeric keys occurs inside the selected folder, while when a folder us "unselected" jumping occurs in the active column.
