Internet Explorer We already know quite a few details about Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft's upcoming attempt to retain - or grow - its market share in the browser world. Standards and speed are the main focus of IE9, and if a video of the upcoming beta release is anything to go by, they're doing pretty well. Just... Did they just manage to make the interface even less appealing?

It’s not fake—but it is beta.

I think Microsoft have been experimenting with saving vertical space, betting on that fact that the average screen is now quite wide, and [because Windows’ window management is so bad] the browser is always maximised.



Uhm, you do realise it is PEOPLE who maximise, right? Why on EARTH would Windows' window management have anything to do with it? Put any random Windows user in front of any UI and they will maximise.
