I have posted about the "missing" upload status bar in Youtube a few days back and told my piece about how important that feature is. A while ago, I started a video upload to Youtube and was surprised to see the upload status bar. I also noticed that the upload now seemed faster. I guess the reason why Youtube removed that feature a few months back is because they did not want users to see how slow the upload process could take. Now, probably they have improved the upload system and they are now proud to show us the upload status bar.
