The latest Firefox 4 nightly builds (Minefield) feature a new two columns menu that gathers the most frequently used actions to help users perform their browsing faster.
Introduced in previous Firefox 4 betas as a single column menu, this iteration divides menu items into actions like save, edit, send, print and exit in the first column, and managing preferences, add-ons, downloads, and bookmarks in the second one.
I am not convinced of the dual purpose menu items that perform an action when clicking on the text and expand a submenu when clicking on the tiny arrow to their right. I find it somewhat confusing, but spending some time with it will be the best way to find out if it really adjust to what I most frequently want to do.
The new Firefox menu didn’t make it for the fourth Firefox beta cut last week (and coming this week), but should be generally available for the fifth, in early September.
