The new Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) software has taken web surfing to a higher level. Microsoft's newest web browser has been available for a couple of months now, and comes with its new operating system, Windows Vista.
My favorite feature of this new browser software is the tabbed browsing. Prior to IE7, to view multiple web pages at once, you either had to open Internet Explorer multiple times, or use a different browser like FireFox.
The image below (click for larger image) shows a small portion of the new IE7 browser. It currently displays the LegacyFamilyTree.com site. To open another site at the same time, simply click on the button next to the main tab. This will open a new web site where you can type in a different web address (www.familysearch.org for example). Now, to switch back and forth between the two web sites, all you have to do is click on the tabs. No more ALT-tabbing, minimizing, or resizing windows to view multiple sites.
To see which version of Internet Explorer you are using, with it open, click on the Help menu, and click on About.
