Windows 8 Feature Wish List Item: the Uberbar

Quote:

Forget about the Superbar, Windows 8 needs an Uberbar. Think about it in the lines of the Windows 7 Superbar, but on steroids.

The new Windows 7 taskbar made the first appearance in May 2008, in a demonstration offered by Julie Larson-Green, Corporate Vice President, Windows Experience.

At that time, the small detail at the bottom of the screen in the preview version of Windows 7 from Larson-Greenís demo caused a bit of a stir, but Microsoft wasnít in any way ready to share details of what was referred to internally as the Superbar.

It was only in Build 7000, the Beta development milestone of Windows 7 delivered in early 2009 that the Superbar become available for testing, even though it had already been baked into the operating system, but kept hidden even in M3, in late 2008.

As Microsoft is cooking the next generation of Windows, the evolution is bound to impact multiple areas of the platform, both under-the-hood and on the surface.

I like the open item list from the Taskbar
Hello, I was reading here that someone did not like the downward list of open items from the taskbar, but preferred a "pane" for each open Window. I have just the opposite problem. When I have "too many" Windows open in IE, it displays them as a list as shown in his picture, which I have...
