Default Just found my second fave feature of IE7

Maybe all of you already know this but middle clicking on a link opens it up in a new tab!!!!!!!!!

CTRL+left clicking a link has the same effect. (in Firefox as well)

You can change the settings

I prefer the way tabs work in IE7 v/s ff2 and opera BUT they all have their pro's and cons.

FF2 is the most bloated, unfortunately, it also has the best overall package (for me). If it was a little faster, I would be happy as a fat kid in a candy store but alas.

IE7 needs more extensions/add-ons to really start dominating. Fortunately for MS, the majority of users are not aware of such things.

I wish IE7 had the CTRL+Page Up (Page Down) tab cycling that FF has. IE7 does have the CTRL+number to the corresponding tab though like FF.

Yeah, I love that feature. Whenever I use an older version though, I forget it's not supported and start clicking the links with the middle mouse button ( which usually just activates the scroll wheel). Takes me a second to figure out what's going on almost every time. I'll be glad when all the computers at work finally have IE7 installed.
