Want to get your daily news delivered right to your browsers doorstep?
IE8 Web slices allow you to subscribe to various forms of website content (RSS feeds, Twitter updates, etc.) and have it delivered right to your Internet Explorer favorites toolbar. Even better, it’s always visible and you can get visual clues when there’s new data to see – the font turns bold whenever new updates arrive.
The new Accelerators in Internet Explorer 8 help you quickly perform your everyday browsing tasks without navigating to other websites to get things done. Simply highlight text from any webpage, and then click on the blue Accelerator icon that appears above your selection to obtain driving directions, translate and define words, email content to others, search with ease, and more.
