IIS Admin.NET 1.1 for Windows 7

Back when I was using windows XP is used a utility called IIS Admin.NET 1.1 (http://iisadmin.codeplex.com/releases/view/2916) that let me create multiple websites in IIS.  Now with IIS 7.x that ability to create multiple sites is built in but I miss one of the handy features that came with that program.  

It create a system tray icon that you could right-click and see all the sites in IIS and if you selected (left clicked) any one of them it would make that the active site.  Now, the only way I know to switch between sites in IIS 7 is to open up inetmgr, stop the current site, and start the site I want to be active.  Does anyone know of any software (or built-in tricks) that approximate this functionality on Windows 7 (IIS 7.5)?  I am looking for the easiest way to switch between sites so if you have a good way to do it that isn't exactly as I described above, please don't feel constrained by the way I stated things in this question, just let me know what you do.

Thanks.

You mean binding to use different domain names for each website?  I dont have domain names for each website (for my localhost).  Because of this I work on each website using "http://localhost".  What I was asking was how to make "http://localhost" point to a different iis website (e.g. find the current site that is running (if it is bound to all unassigned ips), stop that current site, start the new site) in an easier way than what I described in my question.

Well I just decided to go ahead and write app that does what I wanted.  The behind-the-scenes commands that I used to support this functionality were:

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list site
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd stop site "MyCoolWebsiteName"
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd start site "MyCoolWebsiteName"
