At the moment the materials browser shows a list of material names, but only when clicking on each one do we see the editor image. It would be nice if each time we selected a category, we then saw a grid of thumbnails, like the texture browser, so we could see them all.

Raise a tracker and assign to Greebo, if he can do it and has the time he will respond etc.

It would be possible to do, but it is important to note that loading all of the textures in a folder will result in a noticeable delay, in the same way that right-clicking and choosing the option to import all textures does. So if such a feature were added I think it would need to be optional (via a checkbox or something).

+1, my material library is mostly 2k textures, and I don't have time to create preview versions. Imagine the delay, if I had to load them all...
