Ah, but the question is by whom? With what resources?
and at what cost?

The pool of "good" smalltalk developers is small. And
the resources for projects have to come from
I can joyfully self fund projects that please my
curiosity. Others have their own criteria.

The multiple browsers that exist now are sufficient to
the purpose of satisfying my curiosity and developing
Or finding and fixing bugs. The screen sometimes gets
cluttered. And that is an annoyance. But it is not a
sufficient annoyance to delve into a repair project.
At least from my point of view.

The other part of the question is what do YOU want to
do about this?

Are you willing to write a more detailed user story? 
Delve into browser code and learn enough to create
your own tool?
Hire someone in the good smalltalk programmer pool to
create the tool for you?
(Tim's efforts only costs a few billion euros).

Or search around for solutions already coded. Tweak
has a  browser with one extra level of abstraction.
so when ever you do a new search instead of a new
browser you get a new entry in the top list. You can
go to that list and switch between "browser lists". 
So you would need to find someone to port that to the
current squeak.

I say this to encourage you. I love your questions and
discussions on the list. I just wish to point out that

personal contributions need to be considered and

As long as the browsing tools are adequate, I can't
see where the resources to improve them will come

Yours in curiosity and service, --Jeorme Peace
