Currently apps that use the menubar have to use a hack of sorts. It's obvious they are not equal to Apple's own menubar items. You can't arrange the third-party icons to mingle with the Apple ones. When you click an item of Apple's, and move your mouse to another Apple item, the menu activates normally, but when you mouse over a third party's icon, it doesn't activate. You have to click to deactivate the menu, and click again the activate the third party menu. I am wondering why Apple refuses to reveal the proper APIs for third parties to use for menubar items?
