MSN Toolbar - tabbed browsing

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of "tabbed browsing", but as a bunch of people think this is feature number one of today's browsers, Microsoft has finally provided an answer for this. So, here it is: tabbed browsing in IE. Download the brand new release of the MSN Toolbar over here and off you go. Please note that the MSN Toolbar is the first step towards tabbed browsing, which will come later in IE7 as a built-in feature (beta due this summer).

Nice to know: the shortcut to create a new tab is CTRL-T. Using CTRL-TAB you can switch between the tabs. To close a tab, use CTRL-F4.

One final note: I've configured the toolbar to open up "MSN Search" whenever I create a new tab (there are four options, including the home page of IE, a blank page and a "tabbed browsing instructions" page). In the past I posted about my habit to do ALT-D, google, CTRL-ENTER, ENTER (11 keystrokes, easy to type due to the double o and g) to start searching on the net, which is far easier than the procedure CTRL-D, "", ENTER (17 keystrokes, nasty typing). Now I can do CTRL-T (2 keystrokes) and I'm ready to search using "MSN Search" :p, yeah cool baby. | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks
