Bug Description

Currently applications with long menus list and most applications on low resolution screens are partially unusable.
Embedding of appmenu as dropdown menu under icon/button/caption must be implemented to overcome above issue.

Best examples of such implementations are Firefox's Iconic menu and Minimalist mode in gnome-global-menu (http://code.google.com/p/gnome2-globalmenu/)

As for me, best implementation would Caption (as in title bar) in top panel to open drop down or floating appmenu on left click.
While current (at least in Unity) mouse-over switching is annoying and useless with touch screens.

This bug confuses a number of different issues:

  * screen size and menu interactions
  * the invocation mechanism of menus
  * touch

Each of these issues has other bugs tracking them, or has been dealt
with previously.
