I shelled out $5 for Menufela but it hides both the menubar and dock by using the presentation mode seen in DVD Player and other fullscreen apps. You can't hide just the menubar. And it works a little wonky when switching apps after a fresh restart.
Is there a smoother way to do this?
Do you think it will be integrated into Leopard?
The menubar is one of my biggest gripes about Mac OS X, even though I've been a switcher for years. I just feel like things should be on the bottom. I like that the contextual menus have been moved out of the applications unlike in Windows, but they should be hidden until needed!
