Yeah, why not put the whole pref dialog there if we decide to keep the
menu ? ;)

Anyway if we reimplement work offline it could go in the file menu like
evo and the other browsers. About proxy settings, someone is working on
the gnome control center settings to make them powerful enough for us.
So even that will probably go away.

If they are crack they should go in gconf-editor or in another power
tools tweaker not in the main ui.

I personally feel them like crack (apart maybe the back/forward
gestures) but I'd like to know the opinion of someone more clued them me
about usability.

While we are at it I think the problem of the conflict between right
button + drag and gtk context menus behavior need to be solved globally,
as it affects even nautilus.
