Getting Answers.com pinned down in IE9.

Have you tried IE9 yet? The new version of the Microsoft browser is available to Windows Vista and Windows 7 users, and if you have the opportunity to try it – and its new Pinned Sites and Jump Lists features – you also have the option of accessing Answers.com in a different way!

Pinned Sites are those sites you choose to ‘pin’ or link from the Windows task bar. Open IE9 and go to Answers.com. Then drag the Answers.com icon from URL in the browser (or from the browser tab) onto the task bar at the bottom of the screen. The blue ‘A’ icon will appear, and that will be your direct route to Answers.com from Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Customize further: Right-click the A icon and choose from your favorite pages within Answers.com to show in the Jump List. That way, you can go straight to any page you find valuable, whether it’s your profile, Watchlist, settings, Today’s Highlights,¬†and more.

Tried the feature? Let us know what you think!
