I was thinking of 2 things to increase free space on screen, which may be options.

First : It's not realy original, since its just the same idea you can see here : http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=36385 and here http://www.kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=36385&id=1

But I would add that the menu may contain, in a 2 collumn way, the most often used tools of the app ( even toolbar button, not only menubar entries), and the Kwin entry to set "Always on top" and it's brothers.
And, as I very rarely thought the quit button was placed accurately, just drop it a place at the downer line. I would be a KBFX or Kicker like pannel, but for the current app, inside the windeco.

Second thing, more important:
When I right click somewere, I usualy don't mind to see the original app, I only focus on the menu.
So I was thinking that the right clik may display 2 panels, one each side of the mouse: the traditional contextual menu, and the menu seen above.
As soon as one of the panel has the menu, the other disapear.

This would be realy space saving and mouse movement economizing.

Remember before you vote, the two suggestion above would be only options, not default, at least if you have a big screen ;-) Remember some people use ultra light laptops, and may be happy to be able to see something on their screan.

 note about Opera

As a comment I will add my personnal experience about Opera, from which I had the second Idea :
The full screan mode in opera is _realy nice_ to read the web pages, as far as you don't use the mouse, but keyboard shortcut. And as I am not so found of shortcut, I was dreaming of a right click which would have bring the menubar options.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
