Hi,

I completely agree with Hans proposal. Creating a new page to list all the
tools would be a good alternative. In addition, this page could offer
categories of bioinformatic tools and more information of the tool in
question. Nevertheless, a Google search box is a very good starting point.

The potential of Galaxy is very high and organizing all the ready-to-use
tools can, on the one hand, save a lot of time to people who needs a
specific tool and, on the other hand, exploit the full potential of Galaxy
Public servers that, in my opinion, the still chaotic mode to use these
servers is limiting Galaxy usability and popularity.
