It wasn't removed for no reason. It was removed because GNOME doesn't need  
it. GNOME uses a "floating" status bar that appears and disappears as needed.

For the record, the exact same thing happened with Firefox. As far as I can  
tell, Abrowser 30 doesn't have any option to show a constant status bar.

The GNOME project removes unneeded features. This is a good policy; after  
all, you can't leave features in unmaintained (they might break or partially  
break eventually, and that would just confuse users), and maintaining  
unneeded features is a waste of time. If either of these builds up, it can  
become a huge problem; users would be annoyed, or very little development  
would get done.

By the way, this is a free/libre software community, not an open source  
community. See: https://gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html
