Agree. I only remember shortcuts after a while of seeing them.
I hate ribbons for the same reason that they hide everything in
layers and layers.
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.

think Chromium-based browsers are obnoxious for the poor menu
design, I guess that worked for somebody who thought it was

Firefox is not a chromium-based browser, thank god.
It has a normal type menu structure with file, edit, etc on a
menu bar, unlike chromium browsers which bury most of what you
need in one giant menu you have to cursor down through.
You are absolutely correct that Firefox is not based on the
Chromium code. I hope that my previous post was not taken to
imply that it is (though I saw one after mine that did
incorrectly lump Firefox in with other Chromium-based browsers).
However, I have never gotten the complaint about menu buttons
versus menus. Unless you know exactly where something is in a
given menu-driven system you have to go from menu to menu and
traverse them until you find it. If it's something you use with
any frequency, you then make a note of the keyboard shortcut
sequence that gets you straight to it. This is not much
different at all than dealing with a menu button where the main
menu is a single integrated item. You still have to learn what
is where, and make note of how to get there efficiently. Six of
one, half a dozen of another.
