IE8 – Reopen Recently Closed Tabs

We usually work with multiple tabs opened in our browsers and when many such tabs are opened, there is a chance that we accidentally close some tabs and wonder where they are! 🙂

Well, IE8 might have a solution for you!


IE8 can remember your recently closed tabs (I guess, 10 tabs). You can also see the list of tabs and re-open them.

Lets do a small test – I am entering some text in pastebin


Suppose if I close this tab along with the typed information, will IE8 re-open it for me along with the text entered ? – YES!

IE8 can remember the information entered in certain form elements, exception being those which handle authentication (eg., login form) or any other secure information.
