Q. How can I update the status bar in Microsoft Internet Explorer?

A.

In javaScript do:

window.status = 'Hello World';
Its a handy debugging tool. Some people even do primitive animations:
<script> function tick() { window.status += '*'; setTimeout('tick()', 500); } tick(); </script> See also "Firefox dump" http://www.davekb.com/search.php?target=Firefox+dump
