Internet Explorer / IE >> IE 7 UI

I like a lot of the UI changes in IE 7; I think it was due for a makeover.
But could you please return the "Home" button to the left end of the tool bar
where it has been for the last 10+ years.

Muscle memory is a powerful thing. I find myself mousing to the left side of
the screen when I want to return to my home page. Also, the search feature
used to be on the left side of the screen. Finally, I'm not used to the
Address Bar being so near the top of the screen, and I find that I mouse to
the position it used to be in IE 6 only to realize "it is just a bit higher."
Obviously I can see it, but muscle memory tells me it should be lower.

Internet Explorer / IE >> IE 7 UI you can move the Home button to the left (see below) but I agree the address
/ search bar needs to be moveable

To move the home button: Left Click the button and uncheck Lock Position
then move it to where you want it.

All should be possible to place on one line. In IE6 I have:

Buttons (<- -> Home Reload) + Classic Menu + Adress bar

on the same line. Save lots of space. With IE7 the menu and buttons
tak up 4-5 times the space of IE6 (larger and more lines) even without
the tabbed browsing. In Firefox and Opera it's possible to place all
things on the same line AND still have tabbed browsing...

If this is the new Vista style (huge messy toolbars and buttons that
is not movable) then I'll stay with XP as long as possible :-)
