Internet Explorer hides the clock, forcing me to jump out of the application in order to see what the time is.
Is there a way to force the clock (and other icons to show) while browsing?
I would go with Richards answer. Just press the three dots at the right bottom corner and the clock will appear.
A quick tip that I use myself is to just start dragging the three dots, as soon as you start moving them the clock will appear. That way you can quickly show the clock without hiding the webpage itself :)
