A small program would look at the open Internet Explorer windows and save the URLs to a file.  This program would be sort of similar to UrlHistory (which I recently discovered and love), but saves all the URLs of the _open_ windows, instead of having to go through and select each window and copy it (which is my workaround for now).

I have been looking for a program like this for a while, and even tried to make one.  I ended up with a VBscript that does what I need, however it only works with Explorer as the Windows shell.  (As I use Litestep a lot, this is unfortunate.  It gives an "ActiveX component can't create object" error.)  [I'll be glad to give you the code if you want to see it!]  It gets the item.LocationURL from Shell.Application -- I'm guessing this might be an easy place to start, but then I'm only a mediocre programmer, so far... ;-)

Now that I think about it, I bet other people (if any end up using it) would like it if the program were to do the same for Firefox tabs, if that is easy to implement. 

I'd appreciate comments on this idea.  Also, I'd be glad to carry on programming it myself if anyone has tips or suggestions on where to start... but I bet you guys could do it a lot faster if you felt like it :-)
