Web site ShareTabs is sort of like TinyURL when you want to share several links, allowing you to send one link that will open a number of links in separate tabs with one click.

Here’s an example:

If I wanted to share all the paid to click sites with someone, I could simply send the following ShareTabs link:
http://www.sharetabs.com/?makemoney
or:
http://www.sharetabs.com/xp9

When you follow that link, you’ll see the page below.
The thumbnails display each site, and clicking a thumbnail will open that site in one of the faux tabs you see at the top of the screenshot (they may look like Firefox tabs, but they’re actually just a graphical element inside the ShareTabs site). You can either navigate the sites by clicking around the faux tabs, or you can click the Open all links link at the top of the page to actually open each link in a separate tab. If you’re looking to share a lot of links without taking a lot of space to do it, ShareTabs is a great tool.

Update: All of these “official” concept renderings have been apparently taken from Deviant Art and are not official at all. Some still look very nice.

The guys over at Crunchgear came up with eighteen new screenshots of Windows 7 which later turned out to be concept renderings instead of screenshots of the latest Windows 7 build. This was pointed out by a Microsoft representative after posting those images on the website. Several of the features shown on the screenshots however resemble those that we have seen from Windows 7 Milestone 1 screenshots and videos and it is very likely that they will make their way into the final product.

So what is Windows 7?

It’s the next version of Windows for PCs, and it’s the result of working hand-in-hand with our partners and with people who use Windows in the real world every day. We’re paying particular attention to the things they’re telling us are important to them and will make their PCs work the way they want them to—things like enhanced reliability, responsiveness, and faster boot and shut-down. We’re also trying to make their everyday tasks easier, like connecting and syncing devices, browsing the web, and managing a home network.

Of course, we’re also working on new capabilities, so people will be able to do things with Windows 7 that were difficult (or perhaps impossible) to do with PCs before. Finally, we’re working hard to ensure that Windows 7 will run on any PC and work with any program that works today with Windows Vista, so upgrading from Windows Vista will be easy.
