Do you want to close all tabs or the current tab?

March 23, 2009

Q: This dialog appears when you click “Close” in an IE8 window that has more than one tab open. When you click either button, the window is closed. What’s wrong here?
A: CANCEL is missing. The close button in top right actually functions as cancel, but there’s little feedforward for it. You don’t know until you try. There should be an explicit Cancel button.
