While it may not be possible to speed this up, it would be nice if the items in the Console URL list could be reordered (move any item in the list up or down) so that the list could be prioritized so the most used links could be populated first.
Secondly once population begins the menu items get a generated name which putt-putts along the menu box at about 2 characters a second. That's fine except for youtube search links that get a "YouTube Videos matching query: searchterm [gdata.youtube.com]" message which means you have to highlite the menu item and wait 6 seconds for the search term to appear. Top Rated and Most Viewed don't have that excessive header and it would be nice if the created name was simply "Searchterm [gdata.youtube.com]"
Finally it would be nice if a folder hierarchy could be created and named even if its just one level, so we could group common links such as news, youtube, earth-touch etc.
Here is my current set of on-line url's. The first 4 take 4-5 minutes to populate and the earth-touch take the remaining 40 minutes. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong.
