Hello,

Thanks for the comment.

We are no way hinting that the webmasters are wrong. The goal of the toolbar redesign was to address the problems (listed in the post) that we found from user research. The ‘admin’ toolbar was the inspiration for this project because we think, modifications to it would help address those issues and improve the UX.

For D7, there was a lot of discussion about which toolbar should go in core. The admin_menu toolbar was a choice but after a lot of discussion, it was decided by the community to go with the existing toolbar. So, we want to build a toolbar that was well received by the community. We also think that the admin_menu toolbar’s IA and the flyout menus were not helping us in addressing the issues we wanted to get resolved.

Hope this answers your concern.
