Which goes to show why drawers suck
Authored by: kaboom on Apr 07, '03 02:35:57PM

I've known about this 'feature' for a while but it did suprise me as well at first. Why? Because there is NO visual indication that drawers are resizable! Plus that border is nigh impossible to grab the first time unless you move your mouse very slowly and deliberatly.
That, coupled with the fact that drawers make your main window smaller in most cases (see Camino), point to lousy interface design.
Drawers should only be used for windows that will never be fullscreen and they should have a) a larger border to hit for resizing and b) some sort of indication (plus a cursor change) that shows that they are resizable.
