Just click in the pane you want to change, then the address bar and
bookmarks, etc will affect that pane. Drag and drop work as expected.

For instance:
While I'm editing a site I admin, I'll open a 2 pane window,
left = ftp://mysite.com
right = /home/godzero

to edit a html or .htaccess, etc I right click the file... "edit with... kate"
to create a new folder right click window..."new... folder"
to copy a file from ftp://mysite.com to /home/godzero or vise-versa,
click and drag

Infact most most kde friendly programs will be able to use or edit
files that way.
EG: right click ftp://mysite.com/smiley.png... edit with...
kolourpaint will download the file into the editor, you edit + save,
then kde will upload the result.

It's just like working on the local file system, but more 'laggy' on
read an writes... obviously.
