    I have been using IE7 for about an hour now and so far it looks pretty good.
    However, already I feel an important option is missing.

    I would like to be able to hit the search button and have the results
    automatically open in a new tab window. I know you can create a new tab first
    but I would prefer if this was automatic.

    I would like to see this as an option for which you could set the behavior.
    (open in same tab, open in new tab, open in new window)

  3. Try a search?

    The last time this suggestion was made Shift+Enter was proposed
    as a keyboard shortcut for doing it and Prashant Singh [MSFT]
    explained that Alt+Enter in fact does exactly that.

    Alt+Enter is not ideal. Pressing Alt causes the menu to jump around and the
    screen redraw is very slow (on my machine anyway)!!!

    Ah, thank you, that made sense and I should have tried it out first. I'm
    still getting used to associating the Alt key with opening things in a tab.
