It would be great to have an option to move the URL/Omni bar from the top of the app to the bottom. This would be nice and convenient for one-handed browsing. Some people also like the aesthetics of that over keeping it at the top of the page.

I am going to put this off until the 3.x series for consideration. The idea of moving the URL bar is falling out of fashion (Google Chrome tried it in a beta but decided against the feature). Some users really like the idea, so I am not completely rejecting it. But I plan on implementing tabbed browsing first and then deciding how practical it is to add a bottom URL bar as an optional layout.
