In case if you don’t like the address bar at the bottom, you can easily reposition it back at the top.

Keeping the taskbar at the bottom position seems to be a more convenient. However, the choice is very subjective. Personally, I find it easy to switch between the tabs when the taskbar is at the bottom. It is more natural for one hand usage and for gesture controls such as swiping up the taskbar in order to get grid of the tabs that are already opened.
