Yes I am aware of the tool bar on the bottom and the star but its cumbersome when compared to having the favorite bar always showing in desktop IE. Also, the favorites in metro IE are randomly ordered and there is no way to sort them.
Maybe tabs is a bad word. Here is what I mean.

I have 3 open tabs / windows even though I have never asked metro IE to do so. When I am done on the web, I swipe down to close metro IE. Later when I open metro IE again it opens a new tab window. This however is random. Half the time it starts fresh with only one tab / window and half the time it opens with previous tabs / windows still active.
Maybe I am not doing a good job of explaining the behavior.
