    This gray bar that I have a picture attached, is in Safari, whenever I scroll over a link it shows the URL. I can't remember how I got it there... how do I get rid of it?

    Click on View in the Safari window and select hide status bar

    Edit: or do as Lone Deranger says.

    yeah, thats what im thinking too, w/o knowing the link address, u might get to phishing site, and safari currently doesn't have any anti-phishing function.

    How about the fact that it also tells you what the browser is doing at the moment?

    Nah, it's none of that. It just takes up too much real estate. That's all :)

    You need the 10 pixels or so of space that it takes up?

    Yeah, I need to have my status bar just to see what the website is currently doing, I'd be lost without it :p

    I do... the one gripe I have with having the dock of the bottom, is that it really makes the webpage tiny... I redid my desktop so that the dock is on the side... I also find the gray bar unattractive. I don't use this make for any credit card transactions, and there are no sensative passwords (except eBay, and Macrumors :D) But I'm not too worried about phising, the only websites I use are political blogs, and of course Drudge Report... You know, I'm a future Congressman, I need to keep informed, and be able to solidify my debating skills with facts, which I do well.

    Well that was off topic, and very pompous sounding... Sorry, I just know myself... ///rant
