Pin Your Blog with WordPress and IE9

September 18th, 2010
WordPress, WordPress Plugins, WordPress Tools

The public beta of Internet Explorer 9 launched just a few days ago, and has already launched support for IE9’s new pinning feature. users can now pin their blog to their Windows taskbar, allowing them to immediately launch the blog from the taskbar and write a post, moderate comments, and view stats from a contextual menu. Self-installed WordPress users can also join the pin party with the new Internet Explorer Site Pinning plugin. The plugin is only two days old, so it’s not as fully featured as’s implementation, but more features are on the way.

The one Windows PC that I do own will forever remain on Windows XP, so I won’t be able to take part in the IE9 festivities, but I’d love to hear your take on IE9. Should we shudder and be fearful, or should we cheer and be joyful?

    I was just thinking how that looked kinda neat, but I didn’t see any reason to go out of my way to privilege readers on Windows. It didn’t occur to me that some enterprising community member would’ve already done the work for me. ~.^ I love WordPress.

    I prefer to do it the classic way, i find it more safe and secure, some private data just don’t need to be shared with softwares. In addition that I use firefox :)

    I have implemented the plugin now. Really cool to this to the taskbar. But i want to have it for Firefox too. :/

    The pinning feature is neat. But IE9 is not stable enough.
    On my PC, WordPress Wysiwyg editor fails in IE9.
    Many other javascripts crash on IE9.
    I’ll just wait for the RTM. Anyhow, Firefox is my primary browser.

    As always when Microsoft gets a new browser with new features, Firefox does the same, and better, i think i will stick with the Fox as a developer and as a user. Thanks anyway.
