Development and systems Q&A

Currently DNS records are sorted on creation date. If you have a domain with several subdomains, this gets pretty messy. Please sort the records on name.
They are sorted by create times because that is how they are outputted so it makes it a bit easier to troubleshoot and also explains the format of the raw DNS output.
How about just adding an option to sort by name?
Then you could have the convenience of not having to hunt down the record you want, but you could also have the easy debugging if needed.
They are already sorted by record type, so this doesn't seem like much of a stretch at all.
Also, the live zone file is shown right there at the bottom of the domains page.
So why not leave the zone file sorted by creation date (for debugging) and then sort the records above it (for ease of use).
In the mean time, if anyone else is as annoyed by the lack of sorting as I am, here's a little Greasemonkey/Chrome user script that I just cooked up to sort the records on the client-side.
Would it be possible for you to order the domain name list alphabetically by default? They are ordered by date added and with a longer list, it gets harder to find them.
