What is a breadcrumb in websites ?
A “breadcrumb” is a type of secondary navigation scheme that reveals the user’s location in a website or Web application.
Why We Need a Breadcrumb Plugin for a QA WebSite -
The most improtant thing is Better SEO :
According to SEO Experts , if you are maintainning a huge website then you should take care of making it better organized and Easy navigation .

How i add Breadcrumb after Menu links. Thanks.
1- I took a quick look at your code, great work like i said in my commnent. but there is one thing that I dont understand!
is that why you had to re-defined that many terms in your (qa-breadcrumbs-lang-default.php) where may are already available at the default language of q2a core?
"tags" => "Tags" ,
"tag" => "Tag" ,
"users" => "Users" ,
"user" => "User" ,
"ask" => "Ask a Question" ,
"save_changes" => "Save Changes" ,
arent they eredundant with the q2a default language file?
2- There is a tiny bug which needs to be addressed:
It displays category slug instead of category name!!
1- at yourdomain.com /index.php?qa=admin&qa_1=categories create a category and name it "Category one two three"
2- goto categorirs page at yourdomain.com/index.php?qa=categories where each category with its number of questions lister
3- click on the question number which gets you to the category page
4-there you will see instead of the category name that you oroginally entered the category slug is being displyed
This is a very usefull plugin... I love it...
One question: when I add this under "ask a question box", under the breadcumb there is white space appearing, how can I get rid of that space?
Some language bits are missing (not in your lang file) or maybe not connected to the main lang file:
