Easily move from droplet to droplet in control panel

I'd like to be able to easily change to a different droplet in the control panel. For example, when viewing the settings or graphs of one droplet, I want to check the settings or graphs of another droplet. Right now, I have to go back to view all droplets, then select the droplet I want to view. I think making the droplet name at the top (by console access) a drop down menu, with a list of the other droplets, would be an easy way to access other droplets with fewer clicks.

    We recently released a Droplet Search in the top navigation that makes switching between Droplets much easier. It's also keyboard friendly, so no need to click anything. We hope this helps.

    yes please - you could have a dropdown on the droplet icon if you want to stick with allowing users to edit the droplet name at the top.

    Having said that - I am _much_ more likely to want to switch between droplets than I am to want to rename a droplet, so the rename function could easily be given a less prominent position.

    I'm always switching between droplets (e.g. looking at the monitoring tab for multiple droplets) and it is a real pain that I have to go back to the main list to do this.
