Well, I don't care to put it below "Map key", to put it right to "sign 
up", put it right to "GPS traces", or whatever else fits into the screen 
resolution. However, I agree this should be visible on any usual screen 
resolution, as even 800*400 seems to be not an uncommon resolution for 
some current "internet tablets".

My point is that the current "right click onView" is currently *not* 
intuitive for the average user, so it would be a very good idea IMHO to 
have a permalink on the page *somewhere*, where it can be found without 
reading three pages of documentation ;-)

And I guess that the permalink is a very important feature that is 
really helpful for a lot of users, so again IMHO this should be more 
prominent on the osm page ...
