StatusBar Progress for Internet Explorer 11

StatusBar Progress for Internet Explorer 11

© 2014 Igor Tolmachev, IT Samples
StatusBar Progress is an Internet Explorer 11 plug-in that displays the progress bar at the bottom right hand corner of the Internet Explorer window, which shows how a site is loading.

Starting from the version 9, Internet Explorer doesn't have the progress bar anymore (hence no progress bar on the Windows 7 taskbar too).

The StatusBar Progress utility shows the classic progress control and does a better job at keeping you informed on the status of a loading page.
