We don't need to do this right away, but eventually we should get rid of this experiment, and just make this the default behavior.

Once this is live for all release users on 46, I think we'll feel confident removing the experiment checks to make this the default.

Note: we'll need to keep the experiment in the switchboard config, since old clients will still have the experiment logic.

Were we able to determine if this experiment executed on our goals (I presume to increase engagement with bookmarks & history)? I'd be curious to hear the results!

The main goal of this experiment was to verify that we can do staged rollouts with switchboard. We didn't set up any sort of A/B test for the feature, so there are no A/B test results.

However, we do have UI telemetry and could do some queries to understand how much people are using these menu items, and whether that changed the amount that people use the bookmarks/history panels. I don't have the SQL fu to do this on my own, but maybe I can find some queries I can modify to see what the answer is.

In the UI telemetry dashboard, I don't see people using these menu items often, which seems like it could be a bug with the telemetry data...
Redirecting to mfinkle, to help me understand what's going on with this missing telemetry data.
