Some thoughts on User Interfaces

Some time ago I came across this page and this picture.
Yesterday I decided to undertake an experiment. My favourite browser, Firefox, allows its users to add extensions. Currently 1102 extensions are available at Mozilla update. I decided to install 100 of the most popular extensions at the same time.

Meanwhile, over at Coding Horror, Jeff Atwood has a slightly different take on the amusing experiment.
Menus and Toolbars Don't Scale
I'm now starting to question whether traditional menus and toolbars are even appropriate for small applications any more.

It's an interesting thought, that toolbars have outgrown their usefulness, and that new software has far too many functions for them all to be represented.
