"The links bar is exactly the same as the Netscape one,"
No, it's not the same. Show me where you can edit the names of these links? The reason I can fit so many on my Netscape toolbar is because I can make "Mozillazine, etc, etc., etc." into a simple "MZ" button. Show me where you can switch the folder that the toolbar sees, or add folders to your toolbar? Or even put applications up there (like AIM -- yes I use it). The NS personal toolbar is one of its coolest features. IE's version is a pathetic, weak excuse for it. It's there because it had to be, just like OE and Frontpage Express were slapped up there so that IE could claim to compete with Communicator (Composer/Messenger).
"but can be 'minimised'"
Netscape's can be collapsed as well.
"As for your point about the toolbar rollover, NS4 does something similar, it's made brighter. Personally I like the rollover effect."
I agree with Chris. Gray buttons result in a gray, ugly UI.
IE's UI bites because Microsoft simply doesn't CARE that it bites. The purpose of the program was to make sure Netscape didn't become an Internet standard thereby drawing people away from non-Windows APIs, it was not to build a decent program. If you ask me, all they've managed to do is create Mozilla and ruin Windows. I'm going to really enjoy watching IE become irrelevant.
