Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice Calc, and Google Sheets all use some similar behaviors for displaying and working with tabular data. It would be nice to see the QGIS attribute table incorporate a few of these. Here are specifically a couple of things in mind:

1) Split panes.

2) Vertical resize of all selected rows, not just one row at a time.

3) Word wrap.

4) Change alignment for field (left, right, or center).

5) Another deficiency is in how extra long entries in cells are handled. Editing of extra long or multiline entries can feel really squeezed because cells do not automatically accommodate (i.e. many lines of text end up stuck in single row height). The programs listed above all offer better handling by basically allowing a cell to "oversize" when it is selected for editing.
