Well, at least one part of the interface will be readable to folks with impaired vision. Are they competing with someone for world's largest checkboxes? .... which appear to be about twice as big as the Reload button... strange priorities.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Touchfriendly UI on a Desktop system, who doesn't need it?

Touch-friendly... right... tell that to the poor Reload button.

I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the general concept of this (not done like that, obviously, which looks like a dog's backside) but I've found it easier to wade through multi, multi options done in that incontinent style -

Also, because that stuff picks up it's font size from the content min-font size setting, there is also an accessibility win, without needing to do much. Well, it need a scrollbar for the really jumbo font sizes, but that's about it. -

I'm fine just using the bookmark to the .xul, as seen in the first pic, but it does strike me that there is some mileage in this, now very old, concept that may be useful to a wider audience.
