Internet Explorer 10 is impressive. And I realize that the beta is incomplete. But essentially, it looks like Windows 7 with a more complicated set-up.
hot corners. top left is previus app, bottom left is start menu, start at one of those corners and slide to middle left for last six applications..
oh, and to close an app, just grab the VERY top of the window and drag it all the way down. closing the desktop app doesn't seem to close desktop applications though.
