I’ve not been that bothered with Internet Explorer (IE) 7 up to now – I use Firefox 1.5 on my Windows XP machines and Mozilla 1.7 on Solaris, so I already have the most significant new IE 7 feature (tabbed browsing); however, during his Windows Vista overview and roadmap session at last week’s IT Forum ’05 highlights (part 2) event, Thomas Lee mentioned an IE7 feature that does interest me – multiple home pages. This works by opening a number of home pages at startup, each in a separate tab (e.g. corporate intranet, Google, BBC News, etc.).
It’s not as obvious as entering each on on a separate line in IE 7, but Firefox also supports this feature – in Options, General, Home Page, Location(s), enter a list of home pages separated using the pipe (|) symbol.
