I was playing with the public beta of Windows 7 for a while now and decided to show you a few neat features of it while browsing with Internet Explorer and just show the overall experience.
As I haven’t installed Video drivers, this feature was not availaible to me. Picture source: IEBlog
As you can see, tabs and history trick works on Internet Explorer only.
Not sure where to begin now. As for Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8 integration, it’s a really nice idea. I understand why Microsoft hasn’t enabled the same feature for other web browsers. My guess would be: this is because of the development cycle. Even if they would do that, there are no guarantees that after the next release of any web browser; this feature would still work (due to core changes).
And regarding IE8 itself, well, as I said some time ago: it’s Microsoft’s first release close to a “real web browser”. There’s nothing new to say there.
And speaking about Windows 7 itself, I found it pleasant to have taskbar on the left side (which makes overall experience much better, due to similarities between start menu) of screen. Show desktop could be somewhere near start menu though.
