IE9 Address Bar Preference

I'm using IE9 and I quite like it.

For those of you using this browser, do you prefer the address bar on a separate line to the tabs, thus being able to see the full address (as I do), or in the same line as the tabs (which is the default)?

I prefer it in the same line as the tabs- keeps things compact, I hate screen real estate being eaten up. Of course one can elongate the address space per choice.

I need the room it provides by putting them together. I can still copy and paste the address for links so that is all I need the address for.

On the same line also. I'll take the real estate.

I prefer the default as it makes the browser compact and neat.

I like the tabs on a separate line as it is easier to see how many tabs are open and tab content than all squashed together beside the address bar.

Unless I have a ton of tabs open, I prefer to have the tabs on the same line as the address bar.

I prefer the default option too, but since I have a small monitor (I'll be upgrading right before I go to college), there are times where I need to move the tabs to a separate line.
