To reiterate some of my comments in a previous discussion <http://www.mozillazine.or…ticle=1889&message=52> I think that replacing the throbber with animating envelope/nav-wheel images would be great. Marketing fluff would be replaced by a identity creating element that also provides user feedback.
Two suggestions: 1) Ensure the images and the animations are very subtle. Don't distract the user. He can turn his attention to these elements when he wants, at his choosing. Don't force it on him. 2) Though probably not possible in Mozilla right now, make use of the space behind and around the other elements on the toolbar. This helps to conserve space. Ideally the toolbar background should *be* the throbber!
