Windows Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista (final release)

According to Microsoft, Internet Explorer 8 features:

  • Activities: these are contextual services that provide quick access to external services from any webpage. These are “Look up” information related to data in the current webpage and “Send” content from the current webpage to another application.
  • WebSlices: this option can expose portions of a page as a WebSlice that users can subscribe to and bring that content with them on their links bar wherever they are on the web. Users receive update notifications when the content changes.
