Chapter 7: Navigating the Web with Internet Explorer 7
Understanding Status Bar Indicators
The Status bar shows web addresses in links as well as the load progress and error sta-
tus of the current page. When you are working with Internet Explorer 7, don’t over-
look important changes to the Status bar. On the right side of the Status bar, you’ll
find a phishing status indicator, an Internet security indicator, and a view magnifier
(see Figure 7-13).
The phishing status indicator specifies the phishing status as it relates to the currently
accessed site or page. When you are accessing most well-known or trusted sites, you’ll
typically see the phishing status indicator while a page is loading and the indicator will
go away once the page is fully loaded. This doesn’t mean that the phishing filter isn’t
active or available. If you click in the empty space to the immediate left of the Internet
Security indicator, you can display all the standard phishing filter options. On some
lesser-known web sites as well as on known phishing sites, the phishing status indica-
tor may display a warning icon. Clicking this icon allows you to check the web site for
phishing activities, report the web site, and configure phishing filter options.
