    Post What are Web Slices in Internet Explorer 8

    What are Web Slices exactly? Web Slices bring the userís favorite data directly into the Internet Explorer 8ís Favorites Bar, making it instantly available wherever the user goes on the Web.



    Instead of having to repeatedly visit websites to check for updated information, Web Slices allow people using Internet Explorer 8 to keep track of information from within a webpage right from the Favorites Bar. When a website has a Web Slice, users will be notified a Web Slice exists within that page in several ways.

    Hi, my nameís Feran and Iím working with the Internet Explorer Outreach Team. Glad to hear everyone likes IE8ís web slices feature. IE8 has some other great features as well such as accelerators. You can learn more about the IE8 release candidate that was made available last week at this site: Internet Explorer 8: Worldwide sites

    Hope this is useful!

    Hi Feran, good to see you here.

    Guys, in case you havent tried IE8 RC1, do try it as a default browser for a week, in case you are using some other and see if you like it. Chances are you will ! It's quite fast too !

    Hi everyone and thanks so much for the welcome.

    Microsoft has not yet announced the official release date for IE8. The IE8 blog - IEBlog - will post something as soon as they do make the announcement. So anyone interested in the final IE8 release may want to keep an eye on it.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions!

    Thanks,

    Hello Friends........
