Mango Moves the Browser Address Bar Down Under: Clever Evolution, or Mistake?
One of the things that came out of the Mango preview was a change that Microsoft has made regarding the browser: they moved the address bar to the bottom of the interface, right above the keyboard. The above screen capture was from a Mango preview video. What do you think? Is this an improvement for the better, or a step back? Sound off!
The URL bar at the top is covered by the Wifi alerts now.
The Bottom would make more sense.
Personally I would first establish a connection and then open my browser. Once a connection is established and I am browsing I would not like to have a pop-up about further, available connections appearing and covering my page.
Time will tell how people will react to this change; so far I am not convinced but I have not used it yet so I will hold a final opinion.
My point was not that Mango is not important but the location of the address bar. I say location of the address bar is not.
I guess it never occurred to me that someone would have ZERO opinion about the movement of the address bar - because this is the Internet, where everyone has an opinion about everything. I think you're a rare breed.
