- It would be nice if there was some way to measure the improvements that are being made to reduce bloat and memory use. The mail-news group used to add this kind of information to their status report, but I don't think they do anymore. Having those figures each week (browser-wide, not just mail-news) and seeing them become smaller and smaller would be a way to track progress and would provide an assurance that things are getting better.

- Some time ago (right before Necko was introduced, I think), there was talk about improving the status bar, that is, giving more or better information so the user knows what's going on. As far as I can see, the amount of information that is provided now is less than before (for instance, the "barber bar" replaced the progress bar) and it's not terribly useful. Are there any news about this? Was this initiative dropped?

Thanks for the great work, guys!
