Vista: IE Tabs and Aero

Starting up IE 7 and navigating to Google 😃, one of the first things I was wondering about was a funny whiteish blob, saying “Google”, in the upper left corner. As large as the funny combined tool-/menubar, but more imposing because of the white background colour, I was wondering what that might be. Well, now I know: it’s the tabs that IE 7 supports at long last, in the rendition created by the new Aero theme. Wow, who would have thought that this feature would have that ugly a visual representation when it finally came along?

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
