Security Enhancement Request: Domain highlighting (MS IE 8)

Domain highlighting:

"Internet Explorer 8 is the first browser to provide domain highlighting, so you always know which website you're visiting. Domain Highlighting lets you more easily interpret web addresses (URLs) to help you avoid deceptive and phishing sites that attempt to trick you with misleading addresses. It does this by highlighting the domain name in the address bar in black, with the remainder of the URL string in gray, making for easier identification of the sites true identity."

This is a very good security feature that I would like to see implemented on Firefox.
