Submission + - Firefox 4 switches to Chrome-like status bar

Stormtrooper42 writes: As nightly builds users have no doubt noticed, Mozilla Firefox version 4.0b12pre (2011-02-08) now uses a Chrome-like status bar. The absence of a status bar was one of the most controversial features of Firefox 4, but about a week ago, nightly builds started displaying loading messages in a small tooltip on the bottom of the screen ("Waiting for", "Transferring data from", etc), and now, hovering links displays the target URL in this new status bar as well, instead of showing it in the URL bar.
