The breadcrumb, as well as top and side navigation often suffer from too long texts
breaking the design.
Using overflow: hidden hides the context. The user does not know that there is more text hidden somewhere.

Css class: 'text-overflow: ellipsis' solves this problem by adding '...' at the end of the line.

On top of that most browsers and most surprisingly the IE 6+ support this feature.
However Firefox supports this from version 7.
