I've been using IE7Pro for a few weeks and I really really like it.
Some would say it brings some of the Firefox goodness to IE7.
IE7Pro's Features Enhance Internet Explorer's Tabbed Browsing Capabilities 1. Double click to close tab.2. Open new tab from address bar. 3. Enable/disable tab browse history manager. 4. Enable/disable crash recovery 5. Move the IE menu bar above the address bar 6. Hide search bar. 7. Modify the maxium number of parallel connections to the web server. 8. Select the external program to view page source AD Blocker Blocks all forms of advertising, including Flash ads, rich media, fly-ins, slide-ins, pop-ups, pop-unders, spyware and adware ads, and messenger ads. Super Drag and Drop With 'Super Drag and Drop' enabled, you can open new links by simply dragging and dropping the link on the page. You can also Drag and Drop to search selected words with the default search engine or save the selected photo when Shift is held down. Mouse Gesture Mouse Gesture allow the user to execute commonly performed tasks (open/close a tab, go back, go forward , print , scrolling page etc.) by drawing a simple symbol on the screen. Crash Recovery Crash Recovery automatically restores all opened pages after a crash happened. Save Page to Image Flexible and easy-to-use tool that converts html page from any URL to image. It captures the whole web page's content into JPG, BMP , GIF , PNG or TIFF on the fly. Quick Proxy Switcher Different internet connections do often require completely different proxy server settings and it's a real pain to change them manually. Greasymonkey alike User Script IE7Pro Script is to Internet Explorer7 as Greasemonkey is to Firefox. It lets you remix the Web via scripts.

A wonderful moment on the TechEd Expo floor.
The three Guest Editors on TechTalkBlogs met for the first time and Nick Hodge was there to record the moment

You've seen the news, now download the bits from MSDN Subscriber Downloads and TechNet Downloads ... http://www.microsoft.com/technet/windowsvista/default.mspx
And while you are downloading, have a look at the Windows Vista Dev Center on MSDN or watch the interview with Chris Jones on Channel 9

I'll be speaking at the upcoming Microsoft Unlimted Potential (UP) Community Conference next week.
I've been asked back following my session at the last conference
The case study I featured back then is now turned into it's own session on podcasting - way to go Mike!
Speaking of Mike, he has called out to me to collaborate online, via tags and to answer some questions he posed.
OK, i'll give it a try.
Mike asks about Microsoft information about podcasting - specifically subscribing to them
Yes, podcast subscribing support isn't embedded directly in Windows Media Player. However, there are some superb applications that make it simple. I have used Doppler for a while and my current favorite client is Feed Station from those clever guys at Newsgator.
Would it be good to see this baked into Windows Media Player - sure, but here's a way to Roll your own podcasting support for WMP 11
Mike also asks if Microsoft has a service for upload audio/video to a store in the cloud. Well, we have Soapbox for video. In terms of 3rd party services, I can see that there are heaps, but I don't know of any preferred services.
Finally, Microsoft uses podcasting from a content delivery perspective. Just look at the Podcast directory over on Channel 9, and don't forget the local Sydney Institute Podcast series
Mike - I hope this makes sense. Looking forward to seeing you next week
So much potential!
i cant wait for RSS Enclosures & a "River of News" view.
Great app Doug.
My brothers & sister in EMEA have been busy. They have launched an curious application called UniveRSS.
UniveRSS is a 3D RSS feed reader for Windows Vista. It leverages the Windows Presentation Foundation and provides a stunning way of visualizing RSS feeds and their content. It introduces a full-screen 3D universe where galaxies represent the folders of your RSS feed directory, and the stars are represented by the spinning cubes that hold the feed information. Size and position of the feed cubes indicate how many unread items they contain.
It installs as a click-once application, which is a nice touch.
Give it a try - it's quite an interesting way to look at your feed universe.
