slicers works great, and i really hope that something to that extent becomes standardized... as the way ebay rolled out ie8.ebay.com is just sexy i love the slices for my auctions now.

as for the activities... very impressive most impressive was the translation

also who the hell said that microsoft was hijacking the right click? the activities doesnt touch the right click it uses the same highligted mouseover that office 2008 uses for the selected text bolding which is very nice.

ALSO a very nice feature is the url domain highlighting... my mom almost got scammed by a secure.paypal.x.com site once ... had i not been walking by and saw the mistake she wud have been royally screwed now that x.com is highlighted in the address bar its a lot more likely people her would see the error, or atleast its better than nothing.
