Allow direct and simultaneous preview of all contents, information and properties of a selected file in ArcCatalog in detachable/dockable and freely arrangeable multiple windows:
  • Geography preview
  • Table preview
  • Metadata
  • File properties
  • Coordinate system
  • etc.

A thought that I've had is adding some kind of locator map window so that the user can quickly overlay his/her layers with other layers.  It doesn't have to be fancy just something to let the user know where the layer is located.

it would be great to also be able to examine more than one feature class at a time, like when you need to compare tables or metadata

duri, I really think you need to go to work for Esri.  You have some good ideas but I don't see them ever fully embracing them unless you work for them.
