IE8 useful thing to know.
This may be something I was the only person unaware of but if you hold down ctrl you can zoom in and out using the mouse wheel.

Yes I was aware of this but only because I found it in Chrome [my preferred browser] and tried it in FireFox and found that it worked.
Went on to try in IE8 [expecting to find that it did not work]
I only started using it at IE 8. I don't remember when it was enabled for IE.

CTRL + 0 resets the zoom

I thought it was part of the OS, not individual applications as I've been using it in Word, Excel and IE for years, and Chrome recently.

CTRL + 1 to CTRL + 9 will switch between the first nine tabs via keyboard hortcuts in IE7 and IE8 Chrome and probably Firefox

CTRL + F4 will close the current Tab
F4 will set the selection to the address box in the browser
To name a few.
CTRL + Scroll wheel/bar works in lots of programs it even zooms the icon sizes in Windows Vista or higher.
