Looking at the patch already gives me nightmares of the past when I was
using this Windows stuff where the changing of this cursor indicated
that some amateur programmer did something really wrong and with a
chance of 70% the window will halt and in some seconds a window will ap‐
pear telling you that the application stopped responding.

But yes, there are already indicators you need for using surf more effi‐
ciently only in the title. I will remove the progressbar and add the in‐
formation only to the title. The recommendation is then to use tabbed
with surf or something that can display the title.
