    I think it's awful and a copy of Firefox 4 just like everything else in Internet Explorer (well, except the slow speed and vulnerability).

  2. GoodBytes says:

    This is good if you don't have many tabs… if you work work many tabs (which sometimes I do), I would not like that.

    Copying Firefox 4? Please…..

  4. RSVR85 says:

    I agree, hopefully there will be an option to send the tabs underneath the 'omnibar'.

    What? Have you seen the Firefox beta. That's what IE looks like now. They've stolen so many other features from firefox too. They've copied how RSS is handled, private browsing (i think it's called InPrivate in IE), multiple homepages, having tabs at all, and a lot of other stuff. they haven't copied the speed and security though (well, they've tried)

    Looks very clean and minimalistic. I'm unsure about the tabs combined with the address bar though:)

  7. RSVR85 says:

    Yeah, i'm also using FF4 b4 and you're way off the mark.
    To say that this browser hasn't even been released yet, you seem to know an awful lot about it!

  8. Christopher says:

    You're absolutely right. I do know a lot about it. I use it as my primary browser and, as a Mozilla Support volunteer, I know most of the upcoming features and I've seen most of the mockups for the final version. It isn't exactly what IE now looks like, but it's similar.
