A on/off option for the status bar is nice, but I think an option to 'auto-hide' the status bar when pages are not loading would be helpful. Why would I care about the status of a page that is already loaded? I understand there are quicklaunch icons that people use, but I think aside an on/off feature for the status bar, an auto-hide feature for when a page is not loading would also be helpful.

moving/animated UI is a visual distraction, and since we use the status bar for popup blocked, live bookmark additions, and security and anti-phishing bits, this is hiding a lot of useful notifications.
