Restricting datasets to show only the first megabyte is a great idea when dealing with large data files but sometimes I want to see the end of a file to check it is complete or to check the progress of a running job. At the moment I use the helper script to find the file on the server and then use tail. Would it be possible to add a button in the dataset view (next to "show all" and "save") that allows you to see the end of the file?

Also, I have noticed a few discussions regarding tracking datasets through a history and sensible naming of history items. In my experience the best way to keep track of a history, especially one you haven't visited for a while, is to keep good notes. The tags and annotations for individual history items is good but I don't think the space provided for a history annotation is practical either in size or format. Ideally I would like to have a large area to add notes while still being able to view datasets. Perhaps turning on annotation could split the main pane in to 2 areas with adjustable size with an annotation area on the bottom? Maybe there would be a way to link Galaxy pages directly to histories? I'm not sure what the best way to implement this would be but I'd like to see an improvement.

Thanks to all the Galaxy team
