Monkey see monkey do


There was a leak of Windows Longhorn Build 4051, Microsoft’s next Windows OS, and Neowin and WinBETA have the scoop in it. And while the MSN Explorer-ish user interface (codenamed Aero) will most likely be reviewed and revised before Longhorn ships in 2005 (2006?), the features are very real.

The next Internet Explorer seems to have a lot of interesting features, such as a download manager (above), a pop-up blocker, and the ability to install “Add-ons”. Wow, they wouldn’t have been influenced by Mozilla’s Download Manager, popup-blocker or Extensions, would they?
