Why do multiple tabs of Safari show as different windows in the Taskbar of Windows 7?

If you open more than one tab in Safari running on Windows 7, they show up as if there are multiple windows, while technically, they are not windows, just tabs inside one window.

"This is by design. Each tab gets its own thumbnail preview in the Taskbar, so you can switch faster to the desired tab.

Internet Explorer 8 does the same, and it's possible with Firefox 3.6 too: Unlock thumbnail previews for Firefox 3.6 on Windows 7

Firefox 3.6:

Apparently it's foreseen in the version 5.x of Google Chrome."

"As found on http://www.twikid.com/is-there-a-way-to-not-make-the-safari-tabs-appear-on-the-taskbar-in-windows-7/

Run Safari in XPSP3 compatibility mode as administrator to make it behave properly."
