Hi guys, I do have some admin improvements proposal.
The page title is generated automatically by django with default model names but I found big issue with current approach.
Title on change/add/remove pages contains

{% blocktrans %}Change selected {{ model }}{% endblocktrans %}
{% blocktrans %}Add another {{ model }}{% endblocktrans %}
{% blocktrans %}Delete selected {{ model }}{% endblocktrans %}

When you have open few more tabs, it's actually show only 'Change selecte...' next to favico.
So with bunch of tabs you have absolutely no idea what tab is representing what page without manually activating particular tab.

What do you think is it possible to add the model name at the beginning of the title?

{% blocktrans %}{{ model }} change selected{% endblocktrans %}

etc..I know it should be translated for all languages.
I'm able to create PR if you agree with the proposal.

Thanks for the proposal, but I don't see much advantage to the change. The wording is less natural and that ordering could have a similar problem in the case of opening add/change/delete pages for the same model.
