Given the prevalence of wide screen displays, I always wondered why the
tool bars are often placed on the top and bottom.  It's seems more
logical to place them on the left or right, where there is more space.

Agree, but a choice would be best... flexibility is always good, so I
would hope that the user would be able to do one or the other or both
(some combination). Make each toolbar a customizable widget that can be
placed anywhere - even detached and anchored to the edge (sides, top or
bottom) of the monitor/screen. It would be nice to be able to edit them
similar to how you can modify toolbars in Firefox/Thunderbird - just

An added bonus would be the ability to set them to auto-hide/show on
mouse-over, like you can do for the Task Bar, and the Menu bars in
Firefox/Thunderbird (using the Hide Menubar extension).
