Hi Mike,

The URL for the Firefox3/Location bar updates provided during today's
telecon makes reference to some usability data that Mozilla has, but I
don't see a link to that data. You also mentioned a statistic like 40%
of navigation happens through typed in URLs. Could you get us some more
and more specific data? 

The Goals section for this page also seems relevant to our
recommendations and Note. See:

http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox3/Location_Bar

    - Reduce spoofing risks
    - Make the Location bar more understandable
    - Make common* operations easier
    - Don't break stuff people use* 

And, optionally:

    - Find a way of presenting information from EV certificates 

* to be defined by whatever usability data we have
