    Default Mozilla Labs: The URL Bar Has To Go



    Since Google’s move to enable users to hide the URL bar, we have seen what could be the beginning of the end of one of the key features of the web browser. Mozilla has its own thoughts, but there is little doubt that Mozilla is reconsidering the purpose of the URL bar in future versions of its browsers.

    We have been pretty outspoken about our notion that the GUI of web browsers is about to change, much more than the reduction of elements that transformed browsers in 2010 and 2011. It is a fairly open discussion at this point and we believe that there is a chance that the traditional visualization tool for Internet content will evolve to reflects the commoditization of a technology that was once a playground for geeks.

    Mozilla licking Google's back without realizing that IE and Chrome are becoming more of a "Search engine and OS" which will make Firefox the loser in the long run.
    No URL bar by default. What will you have then? A search bar or may be your homepage (bing or google). Most people will type their url in there instead of bringing up the url bar. I know a lot of people already do that even with the url bar present. MS gets profit from Bing. Google gets from Google. Mozilla gets what? A kick in the back lol!
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    seems i have to go back to opera and ditch chrome....

    enabling this places the new url bar on top of the bookmark bar making it almost impossible to see....stupid chrome.
