Windows 7: Ideas for future Internet Explorer/web browsers on Windows 7

Ideas for future Internet Explorer/web browsers on Windows 7

I don't know which section this should be in but for months now I've had an idea I'm surprised Microsoft hasn't introduced into Windows 7 with the right-click jumplist menu.
My idea is that rather than open an internet browser and, then search for what you want, the right-clicking of, say, IE or Chrome etc. on the taskbar brings up the jumplist and standard the programs options while having a search bar to type into and of course search that browser with.
I'm not talking about one of those Sidebar search gadgets that don't open a browser, I mean Microsoft having it built into pinned internet browsers jumplists like the Start Menu search.
Anyway this is only an idea I think would make Windows 7, as perfect as it is, that little bit more easier to use especially if you can use the search to type or paste a web address and go directly to it that way

I know there are reasons why Internet Explorer is not built into Explorer but, it would be nice if with this Windows Live experience, Microsoft fluently (the same as Explorer) let you use the same window to go, for example, from a Pictures or Documents folder and without opening a new window, go straight into Internet Explorer.

This is just ideas that I thought would make working with Windows that much easier and faster (which is the key) so I hope this post doesn't get removed and there is a right section to put this in but also, I would really like to know who to talk to in Microsoft to give this feedback to.
If anyone agrees or has any ideas they'd like to share please share them!
