For my daily work, it's a pain in the ass to delete branches inside the repository browser. I have to select a branch, do a right click, select delete branch (move with mouse or keys to this option), confirm, after this do the same again.
Why not use the delete key on the keyboard for this? Select a branch, press del, confirm. This would be very handy and I think it is a common function.
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201406190001* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Del now works with Branch/Tag nodes.
