      Description

      If a CouchDB has continuous writes, as in the case of a log capturing system, it becomes very difficult to use Futon to browse the views in a design document. If writes are continuous in the background, and the admin chooses a view to browse in Futon, CouchDB will force an update to the view index and will block Futon on trying to browse that design document. This makes it almost impossible to be able to browse the view results as the indexing may never catch up with the writes.

      A possible solution to this is to provide a UI option (Checkbox) in Futon which would append the "stale='ok'" onto all Futon view requests allowing for instantaneous browsing of the current state of the DB view indexes. This option would be off by default (current behavior).
