Windows 7: Is this Microsoft's new Internet Explorer 9 interface?

Thanks Dobhar,

Its on the DL now. Will give a more informed opinion soon...

Edit: You're right. No buttons. No address bar. No internet options.
Ctrl+O brings up what looks like a simple msgbox to enter the website you want to go to. It doesnt (yet) support the ctrl+enter suffix/prefix ammendments.
Nor support history or autocomplete.

It basically looks like a IE in kiosk mode, but in a window instead.

Still. I'l play around with it for a while...

LOLOLOL...was trying to use this "Preview" version of IE 9.0 to post...got about 90% complete with my write up then attached a pic...took a look at the pic but after it opened there was no back button to navigate back to the post...had to close the window...LOLOLOL

They need to add navigation buttons or allow you to use your keyboard to navigate using ALT+Left arrow key & ALT+Right arrow key. You are correct xarden that it runs similar to Kiosk Mode.

Anyways posted a screeny...

I do not see the need to rush into any conclusions, when the beta comes out, we'll see what kind of options we will have to alter the interface (navbar, bookmarks, tabs etc.)

This "concern" of having tabs right next to the address bar doesn't seem like a big thing to me, as I think that Microsoft can't be really that stupid as to leave the interface in this state.

Sometimes things in the "interest of simplicity" can get so "Dumbed down" that it is actually impossible to make decent use of the standard features any more.

For instance I can't imagine myself EVER using the much touted "tear strips" or Side by side stuff -- it's a BROWSER for heaven's sake --but what I DO use is things like EXCEL being able to grab tabular data from the web such as dynamic Stock Market quotes etc.

Basically a DECENT HISTORY bar showing the actual sites I've visited in the last xxx days that REALLY WORKS by just double clicking on the site in question rather than some high level site and sorted in some sort of TIME or CONTENT sequence IMO would be much more useful than looking at bits of 4 or 5 different websites chopped up into tiny rectangles over your screen.

PLEASE software developers GET THE basic FUNCTIONALITY TO WORK PERFECTLY BEFORE ADDING BELLS AND WHISTLES.

Finally isn't it time to kill off stuff that requires ACTIVE-X to work before being able to access the content or even the site itself.

Cheers

The interface looks beautiful. I can't wait to try out the beta.

The IE 9 Preview is a preview of the rendering engine and Javascript engine. Not a preview of a working full feature browser. Just FYI. It is meant to give web developers an early look at whats coming and get bugs fixed in the rendering (html, css, js parsing) before released.

It looks a whole lot better the IE8! It looks like it will finally be able to compete against Google Chrome again

Tried it out and it let's me move around here faster than Chrome does.

It's handling my really slow internet connection better.

If the Beta is faster, it's in.

Back and Forward Button on Mouse

I find it hard to believe that so many people are still using the back button when 5 button mice are so cheap.

Once you use a 5 button mouse then you'll be wondering why anyone would be using the antiquated back button. I have had my back button removed from browser for several years now. It is so annoying and ridiculous when I have to work on a friends pc and they have a regular mouse.

I have bought a few early Christmas present five button mice for friends since they are like...well, I don't mind....and after a short time, they all can't believe how hard headed they have been and are taking other advice more seriously.

Believe me, you'll never go back.

I have a nine-button mouse, but I still use the back button just because that's what I'm used to. I don't navigate backwards very often anyway.
