In review beta, when showing a suggested edit, a link to the page for that suggested edit (e.g. is not shown. I think this link can be useful in some circumstances, can it be added?

For example, when I notice that someone else already rejected the edit with a custom message and I want to look at that message. Or if I refresh the page and it says that this edit was already dealt with and I want to see whether it was accepted or rejected.

In the page Review history you can already find all the links to the suggested edits you acted on; I guess is enough.

You're right: When you review a suggested edit with the new tool, you have only the Rendered output diffs and Markdown diffs options; there isn't the permalink anymore.

Using the URL of the current reviewed suggested edit in the browser URL bar without review/ also doesn't work. It's a bit misleading; we can suppose the IDs are the same, but it's not the case.

Definitively, a permalink to the approved/rejected edit (with the correct ID) should be added when This item is no longer reviewable. is displayed.

I don't mean just edits I already acted on. I guess in both cases I mentioned, the edit would show there, but I would have to look for it (and it may not be on the first page anymore). – svick Jul 22 '12 at 13:19
@svick Ok, I understand better what you want. You're right when you review a suggested edit with the new tool you have only the option rendered output diffs, markdown diffs and no more permalink option. I guess it's not so usefull because you get the url of the current suggested edit in your browser URL bar. – alain.janinm Jul 22 '12 at 14:31
Good UI shouldn't require me to fiddle with the URL. And I'm capable of doing that, but what about people from english.SE? Also, it doesn't even work: the ID in review beta seems to be different from the edit ID. For example, is an edit to the darwin tag wiki, but is edit to some question about paypal. – svick Jul 22 '12 at 15:06
@svick You're right,I've edited the answer. – alain.janinm Jul 22 '12 at 15:51
