           Summary: Enhance: The Activity Window (should be sorted by
                    recency, not alphabetically)
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Currently the Activity Window is a useful, yet simple tool for users and
developers especially when working with dynamic sites and when I don't want to
switch to Firefox for a single action.
However, the Activity Window does not live up to its potential. Trivial
enhancements could make it a far worthier tool.
Most importantly, the column "Time" should be added and the URLs should be
sorted according to that column by default (according to my experience that
order would be useful in MOST situations). The other two columns (Address and
status/filesize) ought to be clickable (currently you can click them but that
doesn't do anything).
Other trivial enhancements include but are not limited to:
- Highlighting rows that are loading
- Zebra striping

Not so trivial enhancements I can come up with:
- Search functionality similar to cookies.
- File info
- Ability to get the file directly from cache, not reloading them from source
(when developing an Ajax application that reacts differently when queried via
JS, this would come handy i.e.).

Please note that I'm trying to preserve the simplicity, but still think it
would be great if there were some more neat features below the fold.
