"I disagree with the points in this paragraph. The 'e' icon in the URL bar is similar to the bit of paper next to the NS4 one, it's just inside the text field, not next to it. You can drag that into your Favourites, on the desktop, into another window, or onto the Home button to set your homepage. "

That's the one action I described in my post. However, the other instances of that icon have no actions associated with them. That was my point. It's a poor design to use the same icon in three different ways on the page and make it useless in two of those instances.

"As for your point about the toolbar rollover, NS4 does something similar, it's made brighter. Personally I like the rollover effect."

The rollover effect wasn't the issue. The issue is that the bar is all grey, *until* you mouseover. Because of this, you can't use color cues to draw you to the proper button -- and once the color actually appears, it's too late to be useful. Netscape could be better in this regard, I'll admit, but IE's solution is really poor.
