I'm needing to know where users who use the bar mode keep it placed on screen most of the time. There's a few slide out panels I may add so I'd like to know where best to put them.

Cheers.

Thanks to Firefox/Chrome and their incessant need to make use of the titlebar, i've had to drop it from the titlebar down to the taskbar instead. However the current skin is too big to fit there at all, as i use fully labeled ones. I'd be very interested to see how short you can make this one.
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.

Thanks for that.

Yeah I'll be making several sizes of the bar mode and other modes too. +1 for full names on window tabs.

Hmm yea, sliding panels is going to be a problem in a stick bar no matter what :(
Generally I would say sliding down from the bar would be best and perhaps Xion should take care of sliding them up IF the bar is at bottom of screen and cannot show the panel within the space it has?

Was thinking about a feature like that too. I suppose it wouldn't hurt though to have both an up and a down button to slide out whichever side you want I can make it too so that if a top version is open and you click the bottom version, it closes the top one first. That's probably easier than implementing a new process altogether.

Cheers for that.

I keep mine at the top. I generally keep my web browser non-maximized though, while a lot of my other windows are maximized. Strange.

although it's really floating around sometimes, i voted top-of-the-screen since i am working on a bar mode that has a large sliding panel, and it goes down.
