cool. We are getting closer to dual + window multitasking. The adjustable browser is great, but does it really add any functionality other than "coolness", since it doesnt enable any other multitasking the way Cornerstone does? They need to get together and bring the redraw ability to Cornerstone, then have google gobble them both up and make it part of ICS. :)

Video looked kind of like having the ability to have at least 2 separate concurrent browser sessions (although the last time I spoke German was a very long time ago). If so, the logical next step would be to have true concurrency across multiple windows. Don't look for that to happen with WP7 (maybe WP8, but in WP7 it is just a dream) or iOS v. 5.0.1. Definitely in the realm of possibility for ICS, though.
