WordPress Enables 20 Million Bloggers to Pin Sites in IE9

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

I have been a fan of Jump Lists since I started using Windows 7, and I have been a fan of pinning sites to the Task Bar as if they are desktop apps since I started using IE9.

I can pin any site to the Task Bar, but only the sites that are designed to take advantage of the features really get any benefit out of it. Thanks to WordPress, there are about 20 million more sites out there that can use pinning to make their blogs more integrated and accessible.

Microsoft’s Roger Capriotti explains in a recent Exploring IE blog post, “To continue providing their users with a truly great web experience, has implemented pinning and Jump List support for every one of their blogs. This means that blogs hosted on WordPress, like the Crazy4ComicCon blog we mentioned a few weeks ago automatically have the capability to pin their site to Windows 7 taskbars. Once pinned, customers can right-click on the favicon and see the last five blogs posted to the site via a dynamic Jump List.”
