Search now well integrated in IE


Quite a lot of nice things in this beta actually...

That's cool, finally IE got highlighting feature!! Though, i always miss the colorful view source in IE. Also the input box highlighting like Safari :-).

Nice to know that IE 8 is catching up with Firefox. Firefox has had this search feature forever!

It's amazing to me that there are so many cultists/fanbois that never look outside of the m$ world....as the other person said, Mozilla FireFox has had this for a long time now.  Likewise, FF had tabbed browsing long before IE too.  So if you'd like these new great things, you could switch to FF or just stay with IE and get them years later.  <eg>

@Michael: hence the "finally" in the post. <g>. Obviously, *you* are not a fanboy ;)
