Has anyone else noticed that in Internet Explorer 7 in the latest build of Vista, build 5456, you can click and
drag the tabs around to rearrange them? Cool stuff 🙂

    Ctrl+tab or Ctrl+Shift+tab goes way back to the 1st beta release of IE7… And now IE team also added Ctrl+1 , Ctrl+2 etc, I think from Beta 2 Preview (or beta 2). 🙂

    Finally, I have been wishing for draggable tables since i installed the beta. Very much like Opera has had, well before Firefox implemented it. Now only if the IE team paid more attention to Opera’s other useful features such as double clicking anywhere on a url that is not a link will highlight the entire address. Once highlighted, well you can do anything, copy it open the page and other things I can’t remember off the top of my head. However much I like Opera’s many useful features I always end up using IE, don’t know why but I do. So come on Microsoft truely innovate.
