Re: Global menu bars?

If I'm reading it right, global menus have been shown to be faster because the user accelerates the mouse pointer to the top of the screen, where it stops. They don't have to slow the cursor down, as they would if aiming at a window's menu bar

(It's like travelling to the moon - you can get there faster for the same fuel if you're happy to use lithobraking instead of retro rockets to scrub your velocity)
