Thats the inconvenient and non user-friendly thing that bugs me in IE9.
Hope theres a way to get rid of it.
Wanna use the hardware acceleration

That is pretty much 1 reason why I simply uninstalled IE9 from my machine.....that small address bar in the row of tabs is complete garbage.

Using beta 4 is messy it crashes and needs to smoothen some edges.

There is nothing un-user friendly about IE9's whole little 'Tabs in the same row as the address bar'. Why do we need an entire row for tabs and an entire row for the address bar? It is a space waster.

I dont think so. a address bar with a search bar is an essential. Knowing that they included search in the address bar like Chrome. But the look of the explorer is clumsy.

That is your opinion and I respect that. Microsoft has done something no other competitor has done so far, they've eliminated the need for extra space required 'just' to have the bar and tabs in their own rows. Why have it that way? Is it really that much of a bother? I understand change is hard for those who dislike it but in the end its Microsoft's decision. I do not see them changing the UI to much in the final release either. More so, just polishing it off.

Ten is fine for me. Anyone who needs twenty open at once, well.. I have yet to actually talk with someone that actually 'needs' twenty tabs at once.

Sounds like people are trying to complain about EVERYTHING with IE9. I guess nothing is good just the way it is anymore. Maybe people feel the need to complain about it so much because its Internet Explorer.

I don't see many complaining about how crappy Firefox is right now, slower at launching then IE, slower at loading then IE, at least for me anyways. Even on a clean installation.
