Request for Improvements...

Hey guys, I don't know if this is the place to put this...

Your application is really good, but it's just missing a couple of things to be GREAT! Here goes :)

1. The tags side bar: can you set that so that it expands on mouse-over? Finding those 5~10 pixels to click that is making it a little difficult to reach quickly.

2. The tags side bar: When you right click on the connection, it has 1 option, "Connect", how about integrating some of the network tools that are there, such as Ping, Tracert, etc etc. Not all of them, obviously, but the core troubleshooting ones.

3. The side bar: how about making it a "layer" above the screen, so that if you open an connection with the sidebar open the dimensions of the connection are not restricted by the space left after the side bar - so that the connection takes up the full window and the side bar is atop it on a separate layer. Maybe making this a toggle option for users would be cool.

Otherwise, great app! : )
Thanks heaps!

#1: Consider posting this as a feature request issue and lets see if it gets any votes!

#2: Done.

#3. Have you tried right clicking in the application? If you right click the toolbar it will show a menu of all connections...

#2 only works under the Tags tab, not the Favorites tab. They should behave the same way.

--I checked this in as well. Maybe we can get some feedback on the mouse over behaviour.
