PoleOuest_CategoryProductEditLink Magento extension is a lightweight magento backend extension that allows store managers to edit products straight from the category admin page.
2012 update : This extension is compatible with all versions of MAGENTO community up to 1.6
Browsing products by category in the admin : there are many examples of opensource ecommerce systems that can do that. Among them, Prestashop backoffice is built around this navigation paradigm, and even Oscommerce displays products by category in its 5 years old backoffice. Of course none of those two have the flexibility that Magento allows in terms of category / product association in a multistore environment.
But in Magento you can't search product by category in the admin : can you imagine that this feature is missing in Magento ! As of version 1.4 (and now tested on 1.5 and 1.6!!!) this is still the reality, easily enhanced by the PoleOuest_CategoryProductEditLink Magento (see the page on Magento website).
