"new" internet explorer?

I had a quick go at the new beta internet explorer a few days ago. initially i thought i was using firefox with some funky skin due to the tabulated feature which looked like it had more bells and whistles.

My conclusion, if you can't beat them, join them, which looks like the path Microsoft has decided to take. Safari and mozilla have been using tabulated browsing and its pretty much become a trend for most surfers. Not to mention, you dont get confused at which instance of IE is hogging the most resources when firefox has only one process instance.

I would think that internet explorer is still a very popular browser because of shoddy developers who do not code for compatibility and only preview in internet explorer. Maybe that has changed, but its the way I remember it.
