    I believe the clicking of the middle mouse button while over a link opens a new tab in IE7, Firefox, as well as Opera. I love the feature, so I have never tried to disable it.

    Ganj (or other IE7 users) can you please post what add ons you use to help make IE7 more usable or secure?

    I tried to use one of IE7's add blocking program as well as their developer toolbar (two extensions I use on Firefox) and I found them completely lacking. I also didn't find the IE7 add ons website to be that great/easy to use like the firefox site, so I quit looking after a bit.

    One feature I really like on IE7 that I wish Firefox had... when you have multiple tabs open, click on the far left most 'tab' which looks like 4 squares. That 'tab' will give you a snapshot/thumbnail of all the windows you have open.

    You can also open a new tab by clicking the mouse wheel on a bookmark (at least in FF). In addition, and I find this most useful, you can close a FF tab by clicking the mouse wheel anywhere on the tab.
