Re: IE8 - Move Favorites Bar to Menu Bar area?
I quite like it. I do think it is an improvement...
Mostly I use the Add to Favorites Bar button, not the Add to Favorites
button, menu or context menu.
When I am finished searching and have accumulated the links I want to keep
on the Favorites bar I can easily drag them to a folder on the Favorites
Center.... easier than the clunky Add to Favorites dialog which ALLways
opens up at the Favorites Root.

that was separate from other Third-party toolbars (to stop those addons
hijacking your web slice results).
When a Webslice on the Favorites bar receives an update its text and
background flashes... Keeping it at eye-level attracts the attention of the
user when an update is received.
ppl didn't like IE7 at first either, but over time I think they will warm to
