Windows 7: IE9 addressbar & tabs ?

Until MS decides to let the user move tabs to a seperate row the only way I found is with an add-on called Quero. I've used it since IE7, but the dev just updated it to work with IE9. It puts the tabs on top of the address bar, so now each one has its own row. Great for people who use a ton of tabs. Quero Toolbar. Hassle-Free Browsing

Yes it is a very good tool. With a little playing around I made it look like what I thought MS should have released it as. Maybe with feedback they will allow users to move them without any add-ons in the next release.

I personally dont see a need for a lot of tabs 4-5 is plenty for me (how many things can u actively be looking at, at any given time?). In fact, its kinda of a pet peive of mine to see tabs lined up all the way accross the top.

I guess one reason i wanted to comment is because im sure microsoft realizes that the average user most likely doesnt use a high number of tabs either. Although some may have a need for 10 tabs or more. I would guess 90% of people browsing the internet dont use more then a couple at a time.

Try using it on a 4:3 screen at an 1152 x 864 resolution and you'll see that at about two or three tabs, the browser's already filled up. I too think the tabs should optionally be allowed on the second row.

Certainly there should be an option given to the user.

fx. when doing research (doublechecking information) and copying to own notes or writing posts on forums, then itīs very useful to have a lot of tabs open.
normally though i have less than 10 tabs open.

i donīt care if 90% of people donīt need a lot of tabs, there should be an optional setting in IE, so the user can select how it should look.
