What I find really annoying is that you have to right click the web page to switch tabs or type in a URL. pretty ridiculous.
Oh and my mom pointed out, "There's no clock!" The only way you can see what time it is is by opening the charms. They definitely need to add the time to the home screen...
How would adding it to the start screen be any better? I can see the advantage of having a taskbar/status bar/etc. on the screen at all the time that would show the clock, but with it on the start screen you'd still have to go to a separate screen to see it, which is no faster or less intrusive than bringing up the charms.
I think the tabs/URL thing is a matter of browsing patterns. Metro style IE is not optimized for heavy tab switching, if you don't switch tabs much and want to be immersed in the page its approach works well, if you're switching back and forth all the time it gets very cumbersome, but you can still use the desktop browser, or another desktop browser and you'll probably be able to use other Metro style browsers that will better suit your needs. Personally I'm 100% on the desktop browser on a laptop and even on a tablet I'm about 50/50 desktop vs. Metro style depending on what I'm doing.
