"Beagle's ability to sort the results is a handy option, though it is arbitrarily limited to sorting by modification time, name, or relevance rather than other metadata fields. The move to having category selection being set-based (thus allowing you to select a number of categories at once) in the Beagle search tool is nice, though showing that sort of interface as a side panel that users could show or hide would let you select multiple categories without having to select None, then Images, then Media for example. Three trips to the menu to pick two categories gets old quickly."
