CR-48 spaces-like experience

In ChromeOS on the CR-48, you can't resize your browser window. It's always full screen. You can create more tabs, but when you do "create new window" (or CTRL-Shift N), you get a new browser window. Where? Well... sort of to the right of your current screen... and the screen then shifts to be filled with this new window. And you can rapidly switch back to other "windows" with ALT+1 (or 2 or 3..9).

I love this. I tend to have mail/calendar/contacts open on screen 1, temporary research (e.g. the presentation or whatever open on screen 2), and then frequently some incognito windows for logging on to e.g. this blog with different credentials as my logon.

And it allows for instant switching... something *very* useful also in presentations with demos... it's as good as having several machines to your disposal.
