Status bar indicator for download-manager
52.00 KB, application/msword
It would be handy if there was an indicator for the download-manager in the statusbar. Generally, I prefer the download-manager to work silently in the background, but at the same time I'd like to see if a download I initiated has already started (there's only a popup when all downloads have finished). So I'd have an eye on my downloads without having to invoke the otherwise superb (thanks!) downloadmanager just to get an idea of the progress. In addition, this indicator could have a (toggable?) time/percentage attached to it or popping up when "moused over", and change when one or more downloads have failed or finished.
I think this is more towards extension fodder. Cluttering up the status bar just makes it less likely that critical notifications (i.e. secure connections and blocked popups) won't be seen. It also means a bunch of notifications and listeners to keep it in sync with all open windows, which gets messy and bloaty.
