I like this idea based on principle. It would be nice if a user could
just download files and not have to choose the location to save to (via
a file selector, eech i hate file selectors). However I'm not convinced
that doing this within epiphany is the right solution. There has been a
lot of discussion on the gnome desktop-devel list about standard folders
etc. including default download folders. Perhaps this is more a
gnome-wide issue.

Of course you could always put the location bar below the toolbar as in
MS internet explorer, freeing the toolbar for the inclusion of other
tools (such as a search box).

Sort of related to this, I was thinking that some sort of security
levels preference box would be nice. These prefs would allow the user to
taylor if epiphany pops up dialog when leaving/entering secure sights
etc. I'm willing to assume most users hate those dialogs and they should
just die anyway.
