That is not true!
Especially the application menus change dynamically on various conditions.
Look at the Vol system which provides a per-record menu for the
most-recently worked-on Person, Project or Team...
Also menus change based on role - e.g. see Inventory Management with
the Item Categories (& the main Administration menu, of course)

Sorry about the hugely late response. This is a great initiative! The UI design of Sahana Eden is one of the major things which I think that we need to address and there’s a bit of work being done to try and secure some funding to support this on some of the projects AidIQ is involved in (watch this space!)
Just some feedback:
* From a user’s perspective I found both the menus fairly similar. The design of the extjs version was prettier – but I’m assuming that this isn’t what I should have been focusing on.
* I would like to ensure that the design maintains
* +1 to jquery if it means not requiring another JS library
* +1 to jquery for allowing me to explore the menu: more >> Documents & Photos >> Documents >> List
* -1 to jquery for the fisheye (expanded margins) hover formatting for the menu list items
* +1 to being able to load pages using Ajax
* I’m not 100% sure about icons in the menus
* I would like to see the removal of the “list” and “add” buttons from the menu – both of these functions can be accessed from the default view for a resource.
* I think there were discussions about making the top level (application) menus less prominent (like Google’s interface).
* Could the menu somehow indicate where in the system we were?
* Would it be possible to load the second tier (menu_options) via JS?
* How could we make it so that the menu was less dependent on what application (controller) was being called. Eg Usually I would want to display the Inv menu for Request.
