Description

In versions of Internet Explorer prior to IE9, when you visited a website, you would be able to see what Internet Zone it applied to in the Status Bar (assuming it was visible). For some inexplicable reason, this feature was removed. I am aware of the keyboard combination ALT + F + R but I believe the Status Bar indication of the Internet Security Zone was much simpler and intuitive.

Additionally, in troubleshooting situations where the zone makes a difference to a web application, it became almost immediately apparent if it was visible on the screen.

Thank you for considering this request

And yet you act on none of it.

I get it. You want to "simplify" the browser. Get the "chrome" out of the way, just like everyone else. Follow the leader. All the browsers have done it; save for Firefox and Opera. They retained the functionality as optional. Though Firefox also dropped the status bar.

Just leave the damn functionality as optional. Let we power users turn it back on. Let the new users have their dumbed down interface as they won't be digging into the browser options anyway.
