UX/UI Upvotes #2: IE in Windows

Yes, you read that correctly. Nope, it’s not trolling click-bait. There is one Internet Explorer feature in Windows that I love and my default browser for Mac and Ubuntu does not.

In those latter operating systems, I have to click each tab (if it’s not the active tab) to reveal the close button and then click each close button. That’s two clicks per tab. Ew.


In Internet Explorer (shudder), I need only hover my pointer over the unwanted tab and click the close button that appears. Yay. Shame on Firefox! Shame! Nothing in IE should ever be better than Firefox.

There used to be another feature in Windows that I was always surprised reigned supreme over Mac … ooh, I should put that in another post …
