I just found Viscosity, and it seems great compared to the standard OpenVPN client. But, I have a few feature enhancement requests:

- when importing .ovpn connections, it would be nice if the imported connection would go straight into the selected folder. Now I have to manually drag all the connections to the intended folder. Also, it would be nice if I could import, say 2 connections at once instead of just the one or the whole folder i.e. selecting files with ctrl when importing.
- I would like to see a "play" and "stop" buttons in the GUI instead of right-click menu for connect/disconnect in the connections window
- PING feature on the connection status/details window. There could be an automatic ping to a certain host and/or ping to the server or just a manual button to test the ping. We use pinging all the time to test the connection quality and also as we use mobile connections, the connection "stays open" if data is transferred regularly (ping is enough). Curiously, the ping or keepalive configuration words do not have any effect.

..just signed up for PIA, and importing all the different connections is a pain! Super useful feature for me - I'm not using Tunnelblick specifically because its import failed completely (for the ovpn files provided by PIA).

Also slightly annoying that the prefs window loses focus, with no dock icon to allow switching back.. requires exposé
