well, the OSX dock does its expansion smoothly and I still sometimes overshoot the icons. I always turn off that swelling/bulging when I use it, and shrink it down.

the XUL expanding menu seems extremely slow and jerky, while the standard one is fast and light so the cursor follows my mouse pointer. in the end I'm more comfortable with the standard menu because the context isn't changing around my pointer (which is kind of confusing/annoying actually), and it's not requiring all those graphic redraws in the middle of pointing. (athlon 700mhz, mozilla 1.4rc2, redhat 9, gnome 2.2)

granted, I'm running XMMS in the background, but that's not about to change :-)

it's a nice UI model, but I don't think XUL can implement it efficiently enough on middle-of-the-road machines yet.
