QM CAE web interface should remember the target CQM subsystem

When using the QM CAE web interface.

When starting the QM CAE browser, the Activity Browser drop down list for "targets" always default initially to the alphabetical first target name.

This is my dev DB2.

I am usually using QM to look at prod. So I must always change it to one of my two prod DB2. Sometime I start picking intervals and drilling down and get the wrong data because I am using dev DB2. I then start over with the proper prod target. It would be nice if it defaulted to a more useful or likely to be used CQM prod target!

Can this web-based QM interface be changed or enhanced to always initially show or start with the target as the target that you used last time?

OR perhaps it can be changed to a user default? (different users want to look at prod1 and other users often look at prod2 so I don't need a system default to start at prod1 because then half my users will be jealous)

This is a minor request... but I thought to make it ... in case it easy to implement. It is a minor annoyance. It is nice to have new idea. certainly not critical.
