Description

We invited the Internet Explorer team to walk us through some of the new features and highlights of the Internet Explorer 9 Beta. You can find more preview videos here.

In this video, Jane Kim, Senior Program Manager for Internet Explorer, shows how people can easily drag tabs in Internet Explorer 9 and quickly snap them to the side using Windows Aero Snap just like any other window. Internet Explorer 9 Beta and information about other interesting features are available at http://www.beautyoftheweb.com.

    The Discussion

    • PerfectPhase

      Nice.  Would be nice if there where snap points between monitors on multimon systems without having to use <windows>+<left>

    • exoteric

      That's very nice.

       

      It's still too tedious though:

       

      - first drag and drop left tab

      - then drag and drop right tab

       

      Instead one could do this:

       

      - drag one tab over another, when somewhere over the other tab, an effect occurs that signals a split view action

      - drop the tab and the browser should auto-snap the two tabs to the left and right of the desktop - or even within the browser
