Breadcrumbs is a path to the product page in reference with the store map. It can be a useful navigation tool for the customers. For example if you have several categories with subcategories the breadcrumbs will help your customers identify where they are currently at at the store.
Say you have an Apple iPod under the Electronics category with subcategory Apple Devices. In this case the breadcrumbs path will have the following look:
The breadcrumbs are enabled by default and can be found under System > Configuration > General > Web > Default Pages > Show Breadcrumbs for CMS Pages. This option defines if the breadcrumb path should or should not be displayed.
