Feature request #773
unified "Load layer" button
|Assigned to:||nobody -||% Done:||
|Target version:||Future Release - Nice to have|
|Platform version:||Pull Request or Patch supplied:|
Currently the user is confronted with a wide variety of buttons and menus to load a layer. I think the user experience would be better, and interface less cluttered, if only one "Load layer" button was present, then choosing the type (raster/vector, grass/ogr/postgis ecc.) in a dialog.

Yes thats my dream too :-) However its not going to happen in 1.x and I'm moving this over to 2.0.0 milestone as achieving this should be part of a larger architectural overhaul...
Changing priority to minor as it is and enhancement request rather than broken feature.
