Pin sites to Taskbar for instant navigation

Pin sites to Taskbar for instant navigation

Aligning its functionality to that of Windows 7, IE9 follows the operating system's ability to pin favourite apps to the taskbar with a new function that allows websites to be pinned directly the bottom of the user's desktop. Pinning a site is easy to do, simply grab hold of the website icon to the immediate left of the URL line and drag it downward to the taskbar. Removing the pinned site is a simple process too, performed with a right click on the taskbar icon itself, which brings up a mini website control menu.


After almost exactly two years, Microsoft is finally ready to move to the next version of its web browser with Internet Explorer 9 progressing from public beta to its full-blown release candidate. Promising streamlined design, fewer dialogue boxes to click through and more intuitive navigation, IE9 is distinguished by the fact that it is not tied to any major iteration of the Windows operating system. In terms of system requirements IE9 demands Windows Vista 32-bit with Service Pack 2 (SP2) or higher - or Windows 7. It also requires 512 MB of memory and 70 MB of hard drive space for a successful 32-bit installation.
