ARCast.TV – Enabling Accelerators on Your Web Site

Really loving Accelerators one of the cool new features of IE 8.  However how do you create them? here is how!. A great screen cast from Dr Z.

Accelerators are a new IE8 feature that enables users to find and access information without leaving the web page. In this screen cast, Zhiming Xue (Dr. “Z”), Microsoft Architect Evangelist, demonstrates how developers can make an accelerator available in web applications so that users can install and use it. For additional resources about web slices are available at IE8 Readiness Toolkit and OpenService Accelerators Developer Guide.

    Nice video on Accelerators! See:

    For readers who use Firefox and are new to IE8, I wanted your readers to be aware that Firefox has a version of Accelerators too, it is called “KALLOUT – Accelerators for Firefox” It’s available as a free add-on through Firefox. See:

    The MS accelerators will actually work directly with KallOut-Accelerators for Firefox so users can stick with Firefox if they want and still get the benefits of the community-developed accelerator.
