Interner Explorer 9 offers us the feature to view our frequently visited websites under "your most popular sites" or about:tabs, as soon as we open a blank tab. By default it shows two rows of our most visited websites, which makes it easier to open our favourite pages.

In case you want to increase the number of rows displayed under "your most popular sites", there is a registry hack.
- Open registry editor from start > regedit.
- Locate computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing\NewTabPage.
- Create a new Reg_Dword (32 bit) value named NumRows and assign a value betwwen 2-5 (number of rows).
- Close register editor and open IE9 if IE is alredy opened, you need to restart IE to make the changes effective.
