Well if you're adding or editing a bookmark, you're not really looking
at a webpage at the same time, at least not while you're actively in the
bookmark window. Also what if there's a choice between let's say opening
the bookmark editor in a new tab or in a separate window. Or would that
be too confusing and clutter the options? Maybe have it in Gconf. I'm
not sure how much functionality one can stuff in a drop down menu but if
there's added information in the right click, for example allowing you
to add/remove the current bookmark to categories,that might be pretty
interesting. Of course I'm just throwing ideas out, I'm not exactly a
usability expert :)
