However, not sure if this is a bug, or a preference that will be added in an update, but I don't like that the status bar is perpetually hidden. I switch keyboards via the status bar quite often (I type in more than one language, but even in English I toggle between Swype and Swiftkey), and once I open the stock browser, I'm stuck with a single keyboard for the entire session.

Anyone else find this to be a problem?
I hear you. I'm also quite impressed by the performance of the stuck browser. I'm still using Dolphin, but more and more tempted to revert to stock.

I have found the hidden status bar to be annoying as well. That's what has pushed me back to Dolphin as a matter of fact. What annoys me about using any browser other than stock, however, is that the phone won't keep the app association tied to that 3rd party browser. It always keeps reverting back to stock. Wonder if that's a bug as well?
