v9.0 [24 May 2008]
In this version you will find a simplified design, with more screen space devoted to web browsing and less to the browser’s options. You will be able to pin a site to taskbar and later open it with a single click. Searches and sites addresses are entered in the same place and, in each new tab, Internet Explorer will show you a list of your most visited sites. Security has been improved, and many non-essential options are now displayed in a yellow bar, on the bottom of the screen, which will not conflict with your browsing experience. There are more options available in the Download Manager.

The new Smart Address Bar and Windows Search
