i think there's room for improvement to speed work (i used this software decades ago, and now im testing it again)

- it was cool if there was a shortcut to activate the effects menu and add one by typing its name.

- masks still doesn't have a visibility (eye button) option

You'll want to look into Video Copilot's "Effects Console." I'm not sure if it's updated with any frequency, but it is free, works as of this update, and is absolutely a necessity for applying effects quickly. All you have to do is hit CTRL/CMD + Spacebar, and it pulls up a searchbox.

 

I think this should be built into After Effects at this point, as my Effects panel always takes a minute to load, myself.

Yes, this should be a built-in feature.

There are a LOT of things that should be built in features of After Effects by now but I'm confident most of them will never happen with the current state of Adobe and AE development. I'm sure we're gonna get a lot of "AI" features bolted on in the next couple of releases instead of fixing and enhancing basic usability which is in many areas incredibly outdated.

But yeah at least there's often 3rd party scripts and plugins to do what you want. FX console works well.
