How can we improve Azure Management Studio?

Allow searching blob container with prefix (just like the azure storage API)

In my product, we create many blob containers. So our storage account has many blobs contaniers in them and there are no tools in azure management studio to enable easy navigation on them.
Enabling a prefix based search (which can use the ListContainers with prefix api in azure) will be very handy.

        This is an annoyingly-missed feature. Even Visual Studio 2013's built-in Azure navigation allows filtering by prefix, and it doesn't have to download the entire contents of the blob folder to do the filter. It is built-in to the Azure Storage API. As an example, we have a blob folder with 100,000+ blobs in it that are filtered by a common set of prefixes, but I can't just search for prefix in Azure Management Studio without all 100,000+ blobs first being downloaded.. this is completely unnecessary!
