      Description

      In the UI Enhancement thread on the dev mailing list Brian J suggested "links to jump to a certain category" to improve navigation on the "Available Plugins" tab of the update center (Source)

      Other suggested options were

      • "search mechanism" (which could be implemented nevertheless)
      • "a second set of tabs by category"

      The attached screenshot shows a table of contents for all categories of the "Available Plugins" tab in the sidepanel.

      Before opening a pull request I'd like to know

      • is the sidepanel the right place for the TOC?
      • should it be always visible while scrolling?

          I really like it, it's a nice way to find around!
          I think the section headers in the full list could be made more prominent (div color?).
          But I don't think it must be visible while scrolling...
