Lightroom: Floating panels/toolbars...like other Adobe products

I love Lightroom. I use it every single day as I am a professional photographer. However, I can't understand for the life of me why Adobe has chosen to have no ability to float Lightrooms toolbars as is possible with the other Adobe products. I have two monitors and would love to actually make the best possible use of them. Adobe, please add this feature as I'm sure it will be welcomed by all users.

Thanks, Freddy

I would like to see Lightroom support a modular window design similar to Premiere. For example, I'd like to be able to drag the folders section to a second screen, and then also resize it. And maybe do the same for the metadata section of the Library tab and move it to a different screen and size it. Thanks!

It's a start, but could we have the panels in detachable windows so we can move them off to a second monitor?

I want to see my folders and collections at the same time. I want to have multiple windows open like I can in Bridge. Or at least let me pull the panels out, rearrange them and have them float. Just make the interface like Bridge... I hate scrolling forever in the folders panel, and then I can't see my collections. Going back and forth is very time consuming. LR is streamlined to edit, not to organize. I use it primarily to organize and it's faster for me to organize in Bridge and then Synchronize my folders in LR classic. This request has been around for years. LR (not classic) is way faster for editing, please optimize LR classic for organizing.

Bridge is a pile of crap too. I HATE the master window paradigm, its a Windows thing. Meanwhile, Lightroom's UI is vastly inferior to Aperture. Adobe should drop a couple million on Apple to crib from the Aperture way of operating.

Modes suck, disappearing tools and command suck, differing window behavior sucks, full screen mode is crippled, Lightroom is just really, really awful.

Imagine if Adobe put energy into making what the users wanted, instead of stuff like Muse...

it would be nice if you could separate the panels. the most precise example I can make is for example the history panel, from the presets panel. it is not possible that I have to scroll through all my 350 presets in order to see the story of a photo

Simple answer is you don't. You can Close, Collapse, the Preset panel.  Or you could turn it off, Hide it. You can also Collapse your presets into the top level categories so they don't take up so much room. 
You can put that panel into solo mode where only one section is open at a time. Click on the Header of another section closes the one you were in and opens the other.

Would it be nice to UnDock them. I guess it would.
