On the future of the menubar

Hi all,

there is a discussion on k-c-d about making Rekonq the default web browser, in 
which it was noted that Rekonq in its current form does not conform the HIG, 
mainly because it is completely missing a menubar. [1]

I agree with the Rekonq developers in that I am not comfortable with the 
menubar as it currently exists. In contrast to the Rekonq developers, I have a 
concept for evolving the menubar into something that can accommodate the needs 
of Rekonq and similar applications, and which could IMO also improve the 
usability (or better: the "obviousity") of existing interfaces.

I have written a very lengthy blog article [2] to explain my (attention: 
buzzword ahead) "SuperMenubar". I would very much appreciate if you could 
contribute your thoughts on this concept. Please note that there is no 
implementation at the moment.
