First, big compliments for the Dock implementation. It works flawlessly
in a mouse/trackpad driven environment.

Hovever, menus at the bottom of a web pages / windows are very unusual
(the real thing is at the bottom of the screen, which is something
different), so it took me a second visit to see it at all. Having a
standard menu in the upper region suggested there's no need to search
for navigation.

Can these two be joined?

Either by removing the top menu, putting a dark bar below the dock at
the bottom for better recognition and making the text bubbles (tooltips)
permanent for the touch screen users.

Or by adding the dock upside down to the menu bar.

Either way we'd have a nice animation for Mac evangelists and reasonable
standard behaviour for ordinary visitors.
