I think it's great that the user can change the toolbar to text-only or pictures-only, and that he can add a Go button all by editing user.css, but such 'hidden features' won't benefit the enduser (nor will it help us in reviews that compare us to IE). We should maximize on customizability, given how easy it is. Why not a simple checkbox pref in the navigator prefs pane saying "Show Go button next to address bar." ? I realize it's a bit harder to implement the toolbar options in a preferences pane since not all skins will have toolbars with text or icons, which is a major drawback to having to design a user interface that is compatible with all skins. Any ideas, Ben?
