The main browser window
IE 9's main browser window takes minimalism to a new level. A simple toolbar that stretches across the top accommodates the address/search bar (which Microsoft calls the OneBox), any tabs that you may have opened, and a handful of buttons on the far right edge. Aside from the notification bar - which appears at the bottom of the window as needed - the rest of the window is dedicated (by default) to displaying web pages
Taskbar Site Pinning
With IE 9, you can 'pin' links to Windows 7's taskbar. When you pin a site to the taskbar, an icon representing the site appears in your taskbar (inset). When you click on that site's taskbar button, you get an IE window that contains the site's icon in the toolbar, and the back and forward buttons acquire the primary colour of site's icon to make identification easier.
