    I use, besides Chrome, Safari 5.0 (just to test, no worries :p). There is (already?) one problem I have come across: When I open mutiple tabs, it shows me that I have multiple windows of Safari open, like for example multiple Messenger conversations...

    How do I solve this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Its a feature added to the browser for windows 7, just like IE8 and Firefox 4...nothing strange about.

    You could maybe look for multiple services running with same name

    Well, I don't actually use IE or FireFox, so I didn't know, but my friend uses IE, and without the separate windows, for as far as I know...
    Anyway, thanks for replying. I know that it's normal now.

    (Still, if anyone has a solution: feed it to me! :p)

    Safari, itunes, and skype are amongst the popular softwares to have this problem. Keep it in the taskbar is fine. But when I click on anyone, it makes a separate taskbar icon, which goes away once you close the program. This is not the problem with chrome or firefox.
    My solution:
    Skype: tools-advanced-untick `keep in the taskbar while I'm signed in'. also untick `auto install updates'
    itunes: no way
    Safari: installed but irritated with this 2 icons in taskbar so deleted it. Chrome is great.

    This problem also seems to be in Minefield 3.7. Running in compatibility mode for older windows versions is a hit and miss.
