Internet Explorer 9 RC Will Allow Moving of Tabs Below Address Bar

Microsoft is toying with a few changes to the user interface of Internet Explorer 9 RC. A new video that has been spotted in the wild shows that it might be possible to re-position the tabs below the address bar. Previous versions of IE9, including the current public beta, places tabs to the right side of the address bar with no option to change it otherwise. The internal builds that Microsoft is testing includes this capability and Microsoft is expected to build this into the Release Candidate.

Users can turn the functionality on by selecting “show tabs below address bar” after right clicking in the tab area of Internet Explorer 9 (see video below). The option will address possibly one of the biggest complaint from the public beta.


  1. I see Microsoft has listened to its users, and solved the wrong problem.

    People didn't want their tabs below the address bar, they wanted their tabs immediately above their content. If they have toolbars visible, the tabs should be _below_ the toolbars - and Microsoft's "fix" doesn't.

    Toolbars aren't part of the page content, and shouldn't be displayed as if they were.

    And then there's the menus - they aren't. They are, instead, just another toolbar. And can be displayed only within the toolbar area - below the address bar.

    Menus should be displayed at the top of the window - above the address bar. And given their current implementation, there's no way to make that happen.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
