Description

The website http://wms-sites.com provides a useful catalog of WMS servers. It would be nice if one could search that list from within qgis, and then display selected layers. Perhaps if there is a standard for catalogs of WMS, qgis could support that too.

Qgis could also provide the means to download a catalog of WMS servers and store them in qgis for future use (perhaps into an sqlite database).

Thanks to Tim for pointing that website out (http://www.nabble.com/Finding-WMS-Layers-tf2590455.html)

It could be better to browse metadata repositories
like geonetwork nodes and selecting layers according
to their metadata. This could be a standarized way to
look for data in spatial data infraestructures.

Agreed. Geonetwork supports OGC Catalogue CSW as a discovery standard.
