I hear AOL is developing a browser based on IE, with “extra features” for “Power Browsing”. Let’s see how it compares to Firefox:
- tabbed browsing – Check
- “tear-off tabs” – OK, not yet.
- a “clear my footprints” feature – Check (in Options, or via an extension)
- pop-up blocker – Check
- display thumbnail images of pages as users hover over the back and forward buttons – no, but sounds like a UI nightmare
- zoom in and out on a page – Check (although an extension improves matters)
- force a Web page to display in high-contrast for the vision-impaired – Check (Stylesheet Switcher)
- highlight or list links on a page – Check (Page Info has a list)
- frequent security problems – Er… no.
