Death of the Application Browser

Having another look at the PB and AP side-by-side this afternoon - apart from
one being essentially vertical and the other horizontal it seems the two
things missing on the PB are display of control ids and easy sorting by
layer, visibility and selectibility

- control ids - in the AP these (and parent ids) are shown in tooltips
- sorting - in the AP it is easy to sort by number, visibility and

In the PB settings you can only sort by layer (top-to-bottom or
bottom-to-top) but only as a global option - @Mark Waddingham could we add
ability to sort by visibility and selectibility?

Also @Mark Waddingham, could we give users the choice to change tooltip
display between the control name or full id like is done in the AP?

Kind regards
