show accurate time remaining when rendering and exporting
In the past decade I have used 4 different programs and not one of them ever has shown accurate time remaining on render or export. It seems to be based on how fast my computer wants to work at the moment and at the beginning of a render the program either low balls the time or it estimates considerably longer. Since I'm not one to sit there and babysit my render. I will go and do other things only to find when i return the render/export is only half way done. Like I'm not complaining about the time it takes, only that if it will only take five minutes it should say "5 minutes remaining" at the beginning and not "3 hours" and then after 4 minutes count down to 0 super quick.

It is difficult to know ahead how much time the render is going to take...
But you're right it would be nice to have a way to get electronically notified when the render is over :)
