Show "Loading" text when clicking on internal links to another tool
Open, LowPublic

Description

When submitting the form in XTools, the form is disabled and we show a "Loading" text along with a elapsed time counter. This is good for user feedback, but in our case it was more because we don't want people continually clicking "Submit" thinking it isn't working, and unnecessarily putting extra strain on the server.

We do not do anything like this for internal links within the application (e.g. the "Edit Counter" link at the top of Edit Summaries). Perhaps we should use JavaScript to change the text they clicked on to "Loading" and disable the link. Otherwise they may be left wondering why it isn't loading, and continue to click the link.
