Over the past few months I've been working with some great brands helping them to leverage the features of IE8. The Sun were one of those brands and today they have released a Football Headlines and Showbiz Headlines webslice. You can install them here.
If you’ve not used webslices before they are little buttons that sit on your favourites bar in IE8. When the news is updated they go bold and when you click on them they show the latest stories.
They were built using .net 4.0 and a whole heap of JQuery. In the next few weeks I'll blog a little more about how we built them but for now, install them and let me know if you like them or not.
