    Microsoft, you were going the right direction by making things look more like
    Firefox but you went too far.

    First of all give us the ability to get rid of or move the home/tools/page
    buttons etc on the right upper side of IE. They stink being where they are
    right now.

    Second, I need to have the ability to sort my Favorites by name. Without
    that I will not use this browser.

    Third, don't make me click on a folder to see the favorites below it. IE 6
    never did this, why would you want to add an addional step?

    Fourth, Let the user put the buttons back together. Don't have the back
    and forward buttons on the left...and the rest over on the right....and then
    the refresh in a completely different place all by itself. What is this all
    about?

    In my opinion IE used to be good. Then sites started putting too many ads
    on the page. I now use primarily Firefox due to the fact that I can adblock
    anything I want. Firefox has better button and menu layout.

    I have no idea why you guys went overboard with all these changes but you
    did. You didn't need to change that much. Give it tabs, and make the
    buttons prettier.

    The only feature that I think is good is the Zoom.

    The home/tools/page buttons can be moved from the upper-right to the upper
    left:
    * Right-click just to the left of the home button, uncheck "Lock Position"
    * Drag and drop the grabby-bar thingy to the left of the home button to the
    left side of the menu bar.


    To sort favorites by name:
    * Click Tools - Toolbars - Classic Menu
    * Click Favorites, right-click a favorite, select Sort by Name.
    (I've read this will be available on the left sidebar in the next release)
