That one?  I for one appreicate OmniWeb keeping bookmark titles from
creating these annoying wide cascading menus, especially from sites that
try to embed 200+ characters of keywords within their <TITLE> elements.
Before the G4 and Quartz Extreme, rendering those kinds of long titles
on a translucent pinstrip background to generate a screen-wide menu
really slowed down the CPU and thus OmniWeb's responsiveness.

Sorry about your wife's objections.  But I think in this case, it goes
against good UI practices.  :-)
