To be completely off topic -- the discussion about browser mode seems
over anyway -- the kde 4 menu does suck. besides that it's buggy it's
not intuitive although it might be better if the existing bugs are
fixed. The only thing it is is looking better then what was the
classic menu.

I will see if the bug (talking about the spatial vs browser mode now)
that is targeted for gnome 2.24 is really gonna get in thus meaning
that browser mode is enabled by default again. The link is in one of
my previous posts.
