Don't add stuff to the context menu, unless it's optional. The context menu is the absolutely worst place to add stuff, in accordance with Fitts' law. Good idea with using the space between scrollbars but it's probably not possible with the normal UI objects. So Don, will we be able to get rid of ca...

Code: Select all

Now you can enter http:// addresses into the Address Bar: they will be opened using your default browser. You can as well define http:// addresses as destinations in the Catalog.

It is :)

I still reckon that second section would be nicer in Configuration. You don't want to see that stuff every day. There are enough menu-items to discover - I just noticed the List Management submenu!

8's not bad, I asked how often you *make* tabs... if you don't make new ones often, it doesn't matter too much where it is or if you have to drag it....
