I read somewhere recently that MS has decided to remove the window previews from the taskbar by instead just having a list pop-up of currently open windows.
Aside from whether that is true, I am wondering what that means for the built-in neat factors.
Example, the window previews were fairly standard for most apps. However, in IE, the tabs were shown individually which was a nice feature. Also, hovering over Windows Media Player, it allowed you to skip, pause, play, and stop your current track.
What will happen to those neat preview features AND if they leave them, will they extend to other browsers and media players such as iTunes?
