      [I bring this up because the bottom of the video was occluded by the video-playback controls]

       

      One of my biggest complaints with IE9 is that the notification windows popup from the bottom of the page. Consequently, it takes me a long time to notice them as I type in an address at the top of the window, start reading at the top of the page, and often
      will have clicked on a link and moved on before reaching the bottom of the window.

       

      I'm not sure what the reasoning was behind this decision, but it seems silly that a feature designed to bring the user's attention to something would be implemented in such a way that it doesn't catch the user's attention!

      I would agree with TheBanjomatic. I don't mind it at the bottom, however ... just copy what Firefox and Chrome do and silently suppress popups, not links that has a target="_blank".  For example, I'm in twitter.com, I clicked on a link from a tweet, it STOPPED me from going there.  What gives?

      Now how about that?  This is some cool stuff for IE.  Now if we can get developers to allow for add ons, I could and would switch in a New York minute
