Internet Explorer 8 / Silverlight 3 Presentation and Demos

IE8_thumb Silverlight

Thanks to everyone who attended the Innovation Showcase event yesterday in Ft. Lauderdale.  We certainly covered a wealth of information and went through some great demonstrations of the capabilities for each technology.

To quickly recap the IE8 session, we took a look at some of the compelling new features in IE8 that can help drive more web traffic to your site – Web Slices, Accelerators, Visual Search - especially if you host your add-ins on the IE Gallery at

The best part is that the development effort for these IE8 add-ins is trivial – and the cost to host them in the gallery is *zero*.  Remember that in order to upload your branded add-ins, you will need to click the “Join” link in the upper right portion of the home page.
