Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

OK, so I'm lazy.

But it would streamline things a little bit if I could click on a button and have a div popup with side-by-side display of a question and it's flagged duplicate. Not sure about including answers, but maybe some statistic of number of answers on each.

enter image description here

While I'm being lazy, the popup could also save me having to think, with something like (too lazy to update my screenshot for this, sorry):

|    Oldest              |           X            |                   |
|    Most voted          |                        |         X         |
|    Most answers        |           X            |                   |
|    Answers * votes     |                        |         X         |
|    Calculated Quality  |          32            |         75        |

Usually duplicates are written differently but have the same purpose/meaning behind them so such thing won't really help in most cases. – Shadow Wizard May 10 '12 at 8:39
@ShaDowWizArd, I have trouble parsing that. Does that mean there's no point comparing them, so I just flag on, or is it not even worth showing them in flag review? – Benjol May 10 '12 at 8:41
We need logical comparison, there's no way with simple code or algorithm. What you mean by "just flag on"? – Shadow Wizard May 10 '12 at 9:11
@ShaDowWizArd, edited to 'side-by-side display', maybe that's clearer? I wasn't suggesting an algorithm, I was just suggesting it's easier to click once and stay in context than do two Ctrl-clicks followed by n Ctrl-(Shift)-Tabs – Benjol May 10 '12 at 9:30
Yes, this would be great! I am lazy, too, and I see nothing wrong with that lifestyle. – Cody Gray May 11 '12 at 6:36
Upvote me to 10k and I'll write a userscript for this ;-) – Manishearth May 11 '12 at 6:43
