Is the "pop up" submenu deliberate (ie not just an artifact of my using Safari rather than Firefox)?  Because, I think those are a terrible design.  First, the user has no visible indication that there _is_ a submenu.  Second, it is awkward to navigate.  The user has to hover the mouse over the main menu and then, without accidentally touching another main menu choice, slide down to one of the submenu choices.  But if you goe to far, the submenu disappears and  you have to start all over.
