OK - but in that context I would have thought it should still look like
it's a "browser" - but again I don't have any hard, fast facts to back
that up!

Out of interest why? If you don't think it take up too much real-estate
in normal mode how can it take up too much when you're in fullscreen?

Or do you normally have it turned off in "normal" mode?

The other stuff is also useful I think, for example feedback on page
loads via the progress meter [Since there's no guarantee of the spinner
being available, or the tab indicators since some people don't use tabs]
, and secure/non-secure status since that's not represented anywhere
else ...
