Diagnostics trace viewer in management portal
Right now if you need to see logs, you have to query azure table WADLogsTable. This is a bit wired. I think it will be good addition to the management portal if it will show this logs in more adequate way. If it will also support search it will be even more awesome.
Thank you for your feedback! This work is on our backlog, but is unlikely to happen in the coming year. However, we do offer the Microsoft Azure Storage explorer which provides this exact feature http://storageexplorer.com/

Also, searching in this table in Visual Studio is troublesome - especially when you are in another time zone than Azure.
There should be a GUI in the web portal that easily shows the last n log lines, and lets me go back in time to see older log lines if I need to.
Bonus for filtering and sortable headers.
Bonus for showing this for the web service, and automatically show the data from the correct diagnostics storage account.
