the only reason I cant do the addons is because IT at work restricts installing some things on computers....I do it at home no problem...

However, one very nice feature that IE7 has is that the tabs, can be reordered, can also be previewed on a page with clickable thumbnail displays of each open tab. IE7 also has beefier RSS Feed options (Source: gizmodo.com)

You can dl add-ons for FF to view it like that and stuff...i forget the name but I have it at home ill get that when I get home but I am still at work soo...

You can get an addon for firefox that lets you view the tabs as thumbnails? Wow, I was actually considering switching to IE7 for that. Mind pm'ing me a link to the addon when you get a chance?
