Windows 7: Five things I don't like about the IE9 interface

Five things I don't like about the IE9 interface

I downloaded ie9 yesterday and I have to say that there are certain things that I don't like.

1. The web addresses is not in the Window header.
2. The back button is too big.
3. The address and tab bar should be on separate bars.
4. There is no need for a separator bar underneath the address and tab bar.
5. The Download window does not should your download speed.

Any chance of these being changed by the release or is there a way to change them through a reg edit or something.

Hi, Dark Light, and welcome to the forum.

You have to keep in mind that this is still just a public beta release, and there are chances that until we see the final product, there will still be (a lot) of changes. If you want your words to be heard, you can always send feedback by clicking the gear icon -> Send Feedback and follow any further instructions.

I personally like the minimalistic approach, because it doesn't waste me any space and for most websites, I don't have to maximize the window.

I don't mind having 2 bars, both my systems have high resolution displays, so I don't have any window maximized on any program.

Thanks, the reason why I posted here was because I wanted to see what other people thought of ie9 and the interface.
