3. Grouped [favorites, history, folders] and [download manager, scriptpad] into two separate explorer bars. By default, the first group is docked on the left side and the second group is docked on the bottom side. Also, each of these windows can have different sizes and the sizes will be separately memorized across browser sessions. By default, the download manager window is docked at the bottom with just enough height to show 4 lines so that it won't take much space from your web page. ScriptPad is set to have much more room by default so that you can view the source code comfortably inside it.
