IE9 tear off tabs

I have been using IE9 for a long time and have grown quite fond of it. The feature I love the most is the tear off tabs. Previously, if you wanted to open the tab in a new page to, lets say, view it side by side, you would have to press "ctrl+n" to open up a new Window containing the tab. But with IE9, like with Chrome, you could simply "tear off" the tab and (Win7 only) snap it to the side.
- To begin, grab the tab you want to tear off and left click (normal click) on it. Then, while holding the button, drag it downwards.
- After that, you would encounter with the following, a tab only Window as shown below.>
Releasing the Window would create a new browser Window with the tab. If you want, you can drag the tab to the side or top of the screen to initiate the aero snap feature of Win7.
