Address bar - history
In the history of websites available through the drop-down button in the
address bar, a delete button has been added in IE8 which allows selective
deletion of web sites. This is a very good feature.

However, normally one clicks on the drop-down button and simply moves the
mouse down in the same straight line to select the website. Since the delete
button appears directly below the drop-down button, users inadvertently
end-up clicking on the delete button when all they actually wanted to do was
select them URL.

It would be better if it were to be placed, say at the beginning of the URL
so that one consiously deletes the site.

Re: Address bar - history
Or you could scroll down to a such a link and use the DELETE key on your
keyboard, just like in IE7 & earlier...
