    Hi there
    then you've OBVIOUSLY never bought a plane ticket in your life over the Internet or ever checked say prices on two or more different web sites without doing a lot of scrolling and switching -- I'd hate to rely on that method of working if you needed to check details say from 5 or 6 different web sites.

    I don't really believe a lot of what you actually post is your OWN experience as it would seem to me to be quite obviously not.

    Cheers

    Ummm....it's called tabbed browsing.

    I've never been a fan of windowing. I'm a switcher. I multi-tab desktop IE10 being that I'm a keyboard shortcut guy. Ctrl/tab to switch through them.

    I also keep my Favorites pinned to the left screen side with a folder for forum pages and threads. I find that especially handy, although one has to use the mouse to choose. WinKey/F4 drops a recent history menu down that I use often mostly to get back to my subscription page and others.

    Overall I wish there was more SC keying in browsers. I'll go see if there's more in Modern/Metro IE. I need to learn that more anyway.

    I'm a guy who has lots of Windows open. The other day I was trying to handle a bunch of tasks and even with my external 24" monitor and my laptop screen, I wished I had one more display. I hate having to shuffle from one app to the other and have Windows stacked all over each other on the desktop.

    For home use, I don't have that much open, but at work it is a different story. I work in a cube, I have 4 physical pc's, 3 displays, and about 35 different vms configured.

    Hi there
    But There's NO TABS in the immersive version of IE -- please get even your OWN posts consistent.

    Here's the screenshot of the Immersive (metro) IE

    Where are the tabs.

    I really think you've been using too much of that stuff your user is named after.

    Have you ACTUALLY ever run Windows 8 -- or are you operating in "The Realms of Bovine Scatology" - because in spite of the volume of your posts I'm seeing that you really understand less and less of how Windows 8 actually works.

    @HippsieGypsie -- I really do need multiple windows -- a single full screen window only works for me if I'm watching Movie / TV etc.

    @pparks1 -- I don't run that many apps !!! but I really do need to compare stuff from web sites / translate documents / incorporate objects from different apps into other one's etc so having a HANDLEABLE number of concurrent windows spread in my case usually on two screens is fine -- not sure how I'd handle 35 active VM's though !!!.

    The standardd version of IE -- non metro -- has tabbed browsing etc -- but again @CokeRobot - you are forever extolling the virtues of the new "UI" (Metro) but you say you like tabbed browsing which doesn't exist in that version. -- Go figure.

    Cheers

    That's curious. It always worked when I was using enterprise and all previous.
    I think Coke Robot uses enterprise.
