Using history is getting a bit difficult. The feature that there is a 'x'
button popping up and with that you can delete an entry in the history
directly is frankly quite annoying.
I will tell you the usage scenario to explain the pro:
i clicked on the drop down button of history and begin to scroll my mouse
over the dropped menu. ( it highlights the entry on which your mouse is so i
really dont need to see my mouse pointer). Now the site names are on the
right side and i would be looking only in that direction, i saw which site i
want to open and click on it, BOOM that entry is deleted. The reason is the
'x' button is so dangerously close to the drop down button of history that i
almost every time land there. This problem can be experienced more on using
IE8 on a laptop, as on laptop you dont move mouse pointer much.
I dont know how you gonna fix that, but if not atleast make the 'x' button
permanently visible so i know where i am landing.
