Google is getting ready for a rumble about a search box in the new IE:

The new browser includes a search box in the upper-right corner that is typically set up to send users to Microsoft's MSN search service. Google contends that this puts Microsoft in a position to unfairly grab Web traffic and advertising dollars from its competitors.

That's just what MS does: it appropriates successful innovations.  Usually with a lot more stuff thrown on and a good dose of cross-promotion 

Not surprisingly, the new IE also got on board with tabs.  Well, better late than never.
