Internet Explorer 9 has a accident of cool new features. “Pinned sites” lets you produce site-specific browsers on your Windows 7 desktop. Pinned sites by default recolor IE9’s Aero glass-denomination interface based on the color schemes in the site’s favicon, which is a smart little trick, and use the position’s favicon as the Windows 7 taskbar icon.
If coded in a strict sense by the site’s developers, a position can customize the jump list links, integrate player controls for streaming media sites such as Pandora, or have a contrariwise display the number of unread e-mails in your Web mail account. Any site developer can instrument the feature by using Microsoft’s pinned location API. Check out this How To video to notice how it’s done.
