From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 BuildID: 2002031104 Loss of funtionality from Netscape 3&4 and following MSIE trend : In Netscape 3&4 status bar while a document is loading, 3 very usefull things are displayed: - percentage loaded - total size of item loading - ETA for loading to complete or "stalled" if no data arrived for a longer period of time. If document contains images, after HTML page has loaded, the status bar will cycle the above statistics for the images being loaded as data arrives. This feature is _EXTREMELY_ usefull for the following reasons: - a plain progress bar holds little information except for an orientative percentage of data loaded. - for large pages, or pages with large images, user has the following additional information he/she can use to decide how he/she should proceed with the navigation/download of that page - user knows the size of the document, aside from the amount already downloaded and if large may decide not to continue downloading it. - ETA is also usefull so that the user may have an estimation of time left, or that the link is very slow and no data has arrived for a long period of time. - this information is present in the "Save As" window, but not the browser window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.look at status bar while loading a page 2. 3. Expected Results: See status bar of Netscape 3&4
