SharePoint 2010 Is Better Because: InfoPath Links Work Better

I do a lot of solutions involving workflow and InfoPath Forms Services. In SharePoint 2007, whenever I go to the Workflow Status page, it always bugged me that the “Document:” link [that links me to the related InfoPath form (ie XML document) for my workflow] always wanted to open as XML or in the InfoPath client, as opposed to the browser.  There are some customizations I could do to get it to work the way I want, but out of the box it was a no-go.

Well, it appears that SharePoint 2010 Is Better Because that Document: link now opens in the browser using Forms Services the way I’ve always wanted!  Kool!  What do you think – do you like this behavior?
