One word: clever. The Windows 7 taskbar - sometimes called the "Superbar" - is light years better than what we had with Windows Vista. Ever used Vista on a high-res display and tried to target the tiny Quickbar icons? Painful! Windows 7 made that pain go away, but now it's easy to end up with a plethora of icons and no good way to organize them. Enter Bins: this app allows you to group icons together on the taskbar, creating groups in whatever way makes sense to you (putting all your browser shortcuts together for instance). There's a free public beta right now, after which the developer will presumably charge a few bucks for the utility.
