Also, very helpful when actually in the Town. You no longer have to run @ around to every shop to see what's inside. Using the "~" menu, you can look in each shop and plan your shopping journey (helpful not only to reduce keypresses and time wasted, but to lower turncount if in a competition).
I'm not worried about keypress or time consumption though. I never really paid attention to that, except in the very early game. In previous versions this function would have had a better use since it would save time with comparison shopping. But since comparison shopping no longer exists, doesn't matter too much. It is nice to have to check for weapon damage comparison though. However I'll still probably not use it much, if at all, since I can just fill up and head to town and sell off the weaker stuff when I get there.
