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?

Matter of taste does also factor into it. I'm very easily distracted, so I use a mix of fullscreening and tiling rather than Exposé-style helter-skelter stacking.

In fact, to ensure I always can, I wrote a simple X11 equivalent to WinSplit Revolution. (Though it's been sitting at "usable but not finished" for months now while I work on other projects)

If I can ever find the time to make them behave more like GTK/Qt than Motif, I plan to switch to a full tiling WM like AwesomeWM or XMonad.
