If you create a new address each time you transact you will eventually end up with thousands of addresses in your client.The question is how can you easily search for one particular transaction amongst thousands?

The thing I like about gmail is the search function that helps you drill down into thousands of emails easily to find the exact email you want.Can we get a search box in the client that helps search addresses?Its not too bad to manage things now that there are only a few addresses but I can see problems in the future if you have a giant list to manage.An easier way to find an address would encourage the good practice of creating a new address for each transaction.It is similar to password fatigue which means people end up re-using the same passwords for everything . You can probably do this using other methods but most people would prefer not to have to run a command prompt to do so.

It would be nice to be able to add a memo to each transaction, something both sender and receiver could view.

Weird, why is there no copy to clipboard for the sending tab in the address book? If you just labeled the addresses with a name size and date then you could copy them out of there into a document that could be searched. Surely it's just an oversight that you can't copy them out.
