Opera doesn't have a status bar, which I miss a lot. In my previous browser, there were tons of features assembled on status bar which could be switched on and off like the country of my IP (so I knnew If I had a VPN/proxy or a direct connection) Zoom levels, Internet speed of my adapter, both upload and download, my IP address, Zoom settings, tile settings etc
Also, status bar showed the percentages of uploads/downloads and address of the links opera is resolvimng or when hovered upon a link.
All of these settings could be switched on/off so User can decide what they want to see on their status bar but if they completely want to remove status bar, there was an option for that too.
When we have a sidebar to manage the modules, why can't we have a status bar to extended information and frequently used features like Zoom and tiling etc?
Can we have something like this in opera please?

I'm missing status bar very much, too. And we need it.
For example with a slow connection or due to slow server response, when you click on a link, you see no status (as if nothing happening at the moment) about current connection activity, and you think that you have never clicked on the link. Then the server responds your request quite late, then page is loaded.
But during the time duration between the moment you clicked on the link and the server reponse, it makes user very nervous while you're waiting because of not seeing any info about current http connection status on traditional status bar (like connected, waiting for reply etc.).
Any basic and other browsers still have status bar too. It is one of the biggest annoyance for me about Opera.
