It would be highly useful to have an easy way to view what has changed but hasn't been saved. Something similar to the "history" view, but without downloading the entire history of an object.

Clarification: At the moment, there is no easy way to view just what has been modified, rather than seeing the whole history - tags only. For example, if I change a tag on an object, for me to see that change I have to go to the object and click history. Then it shows me the difference between the OSM version and my changes as a side by side diff. The problem is when there are multiple objects changed, I have to go one by one through all of the objects, click history on each (which downloads the whole history, instead of just showing the local changes).

Even better, the "save changes" screen should show a table of all tag changes, combined (e.g. github's diff view, with each object as a section), or alternative view with the same changes combined into one line. E.g. object 1,2,3 tagX valA->valB, object 4,5 tagY valC->valD.

Basically, when uploading, there is no easy way to see what has changed, at least in tags. In Wikipedia, when I change an article, I can click "see diff with existing article", which shows my changes before i save. I think this would be a great addition to JOSM, and will help prevent accidental mistakes.
