I've never used the sidebar myself, but anyway:

Well, the sidebar width is not fixed, and nowadays many people have quite wide 
screens, so that argument might not be valid.

What some people miss might be the possibility to switch between a couple of 
recently visited pages with a single click, without having to open a dialog 
first (that was possible with the sidebar before 4.3 AFAIK). At least that's 
what I took from some of the comments in the bug report.

The other issue seems to be that the new history dialog does not yet provide 
all the functionality that some people expect (all one can do with it at the 
moment is viewing the history and opening items in a new window, I think).

Best regards,
