Now if curent uri is too long to fit in status bar we cannot see wait/done and scrolling percentage. Also almost always we cannot see selected uri.

I belive that we need to have a way to truncate curent uri... e.g. http://<first n simbols>...<last m simbols> or http://<first n% of stusbar length>...<last m%>

For selected uri, i mean, second (pop-up) bar will be best solving. Same as in chromium. When we hold cursor over link, second bar with selected uri is popping up.

Maybe part of this can be solved with scripts, but i think that we will need to make some changes in core...
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  This was resolved many releases ago when we introduced the left/right status bar split.

I would like to see some symbols that you can put in the status bar to indicate an 'ellipsisizable' region and an expandable region. When the user runs out of room in the status bar then all items surrounded by 'ellipsisizable' tokens/symbols have x many characters removed from the center until the status bar fits again. Likewise when the user has ample room the expandable region is filled with x many spaces until it fills the full status bar width (thus allowing right-aligned elements).
