User-Agent:       Opera/9.24 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en)
Build Identifier: 

In order to make the GUI cleaner, I suggest removing the left handles from the toolbars. These are thick and not æsthetic, moreover these are not the kind of elements you use on a daily basic. Most of the time, the user sets the toolbars the way they like after installing the application, and hardly ever change them again. It is still easily editable in the "View > Show/Hide" menu if needed.

When the toolbar is hidden, I also suggest hiding if entirely, without leaving a bottom border.

These changes will make the GUI more appealing.

These "handles" are called "grippies" and won't go away in SM.
We have had lots of warfare about them and won't open that battle again.

Ok, I found this bug report: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112534
I read almost the whole list of comments and the huge majority of comments (basically except those of developers) are asking for the grippies to be removed, so we can safely assume that, based on the number of comments, most Seamonkey users dislike those grippies.
