Feature Request - I have two concerns about IE UI:

A. Whats the ETA on smooth scrolling of HTML pages in IE??

Can you guys use Metro UI in the about:Tabs and CTRL+Q pages? Sure you can :D

Use case:
(Besides having the popular sites w.r.t the frequency of visit)
When the user right-click on tab, there can be an option "Pin this group tab" and clicking that option would result in creating ONE tile in the about:Tabs page for the entire group. Also, about:tabs would have greater limit for tiles or limit-less by enabling the native browser scroll or Silverlight’s-butter-like smooth invisible scrolling.

P.S. CTRL+Q should be enabled by default! Its a very cool feature and even the naive user would like to see the current Tabs in an enhanced way. Also if we can see the memory being consumed by each tab right in CTRL+Q view, that would surely be dandy!!
