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?

What does the lack of Expose have to do with maximising? People maximise because it's a habit and because many (I actually checked this) find non-maximised windows distracting. It has NOTHING to do with how window manages windows.

If it did, it doesn't explain why people who switch to a Mac STILL maximise their windows - and this time manually, because OS X lacks a maximise button due to thick-headedness.

Apple's maximize makes sense in an MDI though. if you expect multiple documents to be present on the screen, then a maximize button that maximizes to the content rather than the screen is completely with in the realm of sense.
