    Pardon me for the comparison, but Firefox has so many add ins that I have
    been able to get my tabbed browsing experience 100% intuitive (for me).
    There is one called Tab Mix Options that allows me to fully customize my
    experience. This should be a consideration for Microsoft.

    That being said, one of the most basic issues that has been missed is the
    "X" at the far right of the Tab bar.
    * This places the "X" in an intuitive place that we have all been trained
    to go.
    * It will allow you to close the active windows from one position. In
    other words, to close four tabs, I move the mouse to one position, and click
    the mouse's left mouse button four times. I don't have to continually
    reposition my mouse.
    * One additional customization is how to control the focused tab when you
    close one.
    You could default to the tab to the left.
    You could default to the tab to the right.
    You could default to the tab that was most recently in focus prior
    to the current tab.

    Anyway I would like to reiterate that the "X" on the far right of the Tab
    bar would be a fantastic additon.
