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?

New IE

If that is the new IE GUI then MS has scored a new low. Tab bar and address bar on the same toolbar? What were they thinking? Ever since IE6, MS has stuffed up IE's GUI especially the Favorites bar. Based on my own experience, from the Favorites menu, you can no longer manage the Favorites via drag and drop without closing the Favorites menu first. With IE 6.0, you can right click on a Favorite and select delete, a dialog pops up, you respond and the Favorite's menu remains open. With IE 7 and 8, everytime you want to delete a Favorite, you have to reselect the menu...It's such a pain.

Well, if IE's UI dissatisfies you but you want to keep website compatibility, you might want to try alternative user interfaces for its web engine, like Maxthon or Avant Browser...
