Imagine that there's one item displaying in JOSM's command stack area and it says "Delete node 1421432428".

How do I find out more information about that item (who created it and when, full history, etc.) without typing http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/1421432428/history into a browser window?

You can right click on an item in the command stack, then choose "Select". This will select all of the objects added or modified by that command.

You can then go to View menu - > Info about element (or Ctrl+I) or Object History (Ctrl+H). This will open the details for the selected objects in your browser window.

Though this doesn't work for objects that have been deleted, as it is not possible to select them. I don't think there's any other easy way of getting details for these. If not, it would be worth requesting that this feature is added to JOSM.
