Ben Brooks on the QuickBar Removal

This post refers to

Ben Brooks comments on Dick Costolo’s blog post about the removal of the QuickBar:

Half of the above I believe to be a lie, specifically: “Evidence of the incredibly high usage metrics for the QuickBar support this.”

Why remove a feature if it is truly that popular? You don’t.

I thought the exact same thing. It would have made so much more sense to make the QuickBar optional if it was so “popular.”
