Can the "Insert an image" dialog be improved by automatically focusing in the upload-url input field when "from the web" is clicked? As it stands now, "from the web" must be clicked, followed by a second click to focus the input field.
I know this sounds small. But over on the Graphic Design beta I spend a bit of time editing posts to move image links from external sources to stack.imgur (to prevent linkrot). This improvement would remove some unnecessary friction from that process.
Thanks to animuson's comments, I have been made aware that some browsers focus on the "from the web" button and the input field can be selected with a Tab and not require a second click. 2 thoughts on that...
This does not work the same across all supported browsers.
It works as described in IE (tested 9.0.8112) and FF (tested 9.0.1), but not in Chrome (tested 16.0.912), Opera (tested 11.60), or Safari (tested 5.1.2). I'm not sure if this warrants filing a bug question.
This still requires multiple interactions to get the same result that could/should be achieved with 1 interaction.
