    From the standpoint of technical idealism, definitely, but just having the one add-on bar is good enough for me. For performance reasons, I keep my webdev addon loadout in a separate profile.

    that circle back button is hideously large. For me going to moveable back/forward buttons they take up way too much horizontal space.

    Not everyone likes to have a very wide browser window. Also, some machines have small screens (e.g. my 1024?600 netbook).

    I think there’s a misunderstanding here; when I wrote “address bar” I was talking of the address *field*, not the whole bar with the back button and search field and stuff.

    Edit: and no it’s never half empty, I can almost never read the whole address.
