I am currently part of the Minecraft Launcher beta. This topic doesn't affect the current release of the launcher (as of the post date). I'd advise you to check out the beta because it just looks better than the old launcher. To learn to participate in the said beta, click here.
Everyone reading this post should know what it's about. When loading the game in the beta launcher, a slim bar will show at the bottom of the window. It doesn't move any elements up or anything like that, it just inserts itself in and shows the progress of loading the game. I don't think it looks nice, and I believe you'd agree with me.
In my opinion, the progress bar should show inside the bar showing the installation of Minecraft. Something similar happens in the current release of the launcher, where it replaces the play button with the progress bar, showing the status in the bottom-left of the window.
What about the status in the beta launcher?
It should show as text to replace the play text in the button. You can also add the percentage / ETA to the (no-longer-a-)button.
I hope this can get at least 10 votes, but something way better would be if Mojang could see this.\
