If you are a frequent traveler, it is nice to know the deals what your favorite airline is offering on any given day. Internet Explorer 8 web slice recently published by Continental Airlines exactly does that; the web slice feature of IE8 allowed Continental Airlines to annotate the part of the deals page and publish it as an IE8 favorite.
Continental Airlines in fact created multiple web slices by taking advantage of the existing RSS feeds. The web slices were published to the “Travel” section of ieaddons.com which can be accessed from http://www.ieaddons.com/en/search/?search=Continental%20Airlines.
The three web slices that are published on ieaddons.com are listed below:
