The maximize button is my friend. Toolbars are my enemies.

That’s the summary from this interesting article on Cnet which compares UI features in browsers. [link]

I have to agree with them. I don’t like having any toolbars including that bookmarks toolbar visible all the time!

I believe that browsers, as an application, should be invisible (for the most part) and that the web pages and their content should take center stage or the whole screen if possible.
