. opera 9, wouhou thx you told me there's a preview for it:D but no menubar... weird, because I usually use the menubar a lot in my apps..
there is a menu bar in opera 9 preview 2, and its shown by default ..but there is an option to hide it( it the shortcut menu).
i was chatting last week and i kind of notice it and i wonder how hard amsn life would be like if i had to press ctrl+m to get/hide menu bar functionality and i asked myself these questions:
how many people go to the menu bar, click amsn->close to close the window?, i hardly do this, i always go to the X button on the window.
how many people go to the menu bar, click send file to send a file? i would assumne most people would just click the button on the chat window.
How many people go to the menu bar to use the edit options? right clicking on the text areas should give all those functionality.
How often do people use those options in the view section?
Now just imagine how beautifully the chat window will look like without the menu bar? ..
I am not trying to bash amsn or anything and i am not critizing you guys for the fine work you are doing ..i am just trying to highlight "the old way of thinking", .. I havent used vista, ie7 or the next msoffice, i just see their pics online and i just wonder how they are getting away with it ..amsn will look very nice without it in vista dont you guys things ...it cant hurt being vista ready, does it?,
Vista's way of doing thing is going to be "the standard" pretty soon and microsoft seems to be going away from the menu bar ..linux too is going in this direction ..i dont know if its a considence but all the program that i use the most support this feature, opera(my main webrowser), amarok(audio player), kaffeine(video player), konqueror(file manager), where is amsn?? ..mmhh ..maybe thats why i requested this feature
..always wondered how firefox would look like with this option? ..mmhhh,on my way to request it ..
have a nice week guys ..your work is greatly appreciated
