Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is exactly what I needed, too. My IE8 on Win7 had stopped doing new-tab redirects and the only thing missing from the alternatives was a bookmarks window that would stay open, and this does it!
Once I figured out that I needed to add the "Display Bookmarks" star-button (sorry new user here so I may not be using the correct term for it) we were in business, and I mean that literally.
Thanks White Alice.
