    I'm not sure how being able to restore research and related tabs along with a document is dumbing down? It's basically just an advanced autosave feature, and I doubt that you'd advocate removing autosave from Office, would you?

    Have to say I quite like that idea, as long as it's not too intrusive. I suspect my use case for it would be minimal, but I know a lot of people who could make use. And if they ever add it to Visual Studio....

    Re: Microsoft shows off Sets, a tabbed work environment

    Going back to the taskbar of old (where multiple documents open in word, for example, each had their own icon)?

    This could be really handy, browser-agnostic internet synchronisation (so you also get a chrome/firefox/whatever window up with all the tabs of research you had open) would make it better

    It's rumoured to only work in UWP stuff not proper applications.
