Tabbed Browsing

Ever since the open-source world introduced us to tabbed browsing’s convenient method of having multiple windows open simultaneously — we’ve known the Microsoft would someday add this feature.
Since Windows Vista’s version of Internet Explorer (MSIE 7.0) has this feature, it’s safe to assume that Microsoft will give us this feature pretty soon.
OK, was that long enough? 🙂
Because so many people love their Google & Yahoo! Toolbars, I have not recommended that anyone uninstall those programs and switch to Microsoft’s Toolbar. But now that Microsoft finally got all the pieces in place, the new MSN Toolbar is a great addition to MSIE.
I know that some of you would still like to have Yahoo! or Google as for your default search engine. And Microsoft didn’t make it too easy to switch. You’ll need to change a setting within the MSN Toolbar.
From the “Toolbar Options” General section you’ll need to manually add:
The MSN Toolbar has the usual (standard)  features: pop-up protection, highlighting, auto form-fill – but the addition of desktop searching, and screen-saver (yes, you now have a cool screen saver with internet & RSS feeds)
Oh sheesh – did I mention all of the cool add-ins?
I’ll post in a few weeks when the new Anti-Phishing add-in becomes available.
