hi. i'm new to surf, i like it, but i'm not yet committed. (i still
bounce back and forth between surf and firefox.)

one thing i miss a lot is connection progress when opening a URL. it
would be nice to see DNS lookup progress ("looking up foo.com"), and TCP
connection progress ("connecting to foo.com/"; "connected to

it would also be nice to show the URL as a pop-up (whatever) when the
mouse hovers over an active link. (i like this in general, but it can
be useful for avoiding clicking on phishing links.)

i looked, inexpertly, but some sort of add-on to allow this (these)
didn't pop out at me. did i miss something? if not, how hard would it
be to add?

cheers, Greg Minshall

ps -- if it matters, i'm running on Lubuntu.
