Sure something with a location and back/forward buttons looks like a web
browser :) IE (ok evil) has even it off by default (I'm not suggesting
to do it in epiphany).

In fullscreen I want to have the maximum screen aestate possible. Not
essential, and partially duped by the spinner, information annoys me.

I think fullscreen should have a "fixed" layout.
Somthing like:
Back Forward Stop Reload Home Location Spinner
I dont feel secure/unsecure important there ... I dont use it all time.
On the few sites where I'm interested to that info I can just keep it in
normal mode.
