Currently, in order to get a table with all filters of enwiki sorted by their number of hits, in decreasing order, I have to
- Go to [[Special:AbuseFilter]]
- Increase the "Number per page" to 500 (this reloads the page) and click on "Update"
- Click on "Hit count" (this reloads the page, but sorts the filters in ascending order of hits)
- Click on "Hit count" (and wait the page to be reloaded) again
Sorting the table on client side would save a page reload in the step (4).
