Third-party Work on New Menubar for Mozilla

Thursday June 17th, 1999

Arielb has an interesting piece of news:

"Ben Goodger is working an interesting theme for mozilla with a nice preliminary shot here.

Notice that the menu bar now has a grippy just like the other toolbars. Unfortunately submenus don't work yet so bug #8397 was filed. But I think this is a superior approach for handling menus. Following up on that is this news[group] article. You can now play around with the chrome and note some of the issues involved."

While I agree that it looks interesting, what will happen on the Mac port? The Mac's menu bars are detatched from the main window, and run along the top. As there is no way to remove this menu bar (it is present in all applications), there would be either two identical menu bars, or an empty menu bar where users expect menu commands to be, neither of which would make much (if any) sense to the average Mac user. Has anyone thought about this?
