I wonder if this article should be longer. I realize the old Wikipedia version may have been too lengthy and disorganized, but this is a compendium after all; perhaps there should be more than a dictionary definition?--Matthew Varpness 13:19, 8 November 2006 (CST)

Definitely should be longer. Lengthiness per se does not strike me as a defect. Needs a couple of pictures. --Larry Sanger 15:41, 8 November 2006 (CST)

I've deleted some stuff from the original because they contained redundant information (e.g. "A status bar... shows different information... display information... privacy information") or inaccurate statements. I've also removed the examples, which do not illustrate or clarify. Adding a screen image would help. Ori Redler 08:41, 11 November 2006 (CST)
