Internet Explorer users have a limited choice of add-ons and extensions compared to other web browsers like Firefox or Google Chrome. One of the new options to extend the web browsers functionality are so called web slices that have been introduced in Internet Explorer 8. A web slice is basically a notifier that updates information in a small window regularly. There are web slices for many popular services from news over shopping to social networking slices.
The Facebook web slice for Internet Explorer 8 has been designed to offer Internet Explorer users a faster way to access Facebook updates. Instead of having to visit the Facebook website they now can simply click on the icon in the Internet Explorer favorites bar to access the latest updates of their Facebook profile.
A click on the icon for the first time will display the Facebook login page. The user needs to log into a Facebook account before updates of that account are shown in the web slice. Everything after the login is automated and all it takes to access the updates is to click on the icon in the favorites bar. It will display the latest updates with clickable links that lead right to the Facebook website. It is furthermore possible to update the Facebook status right from the web slice’s window.
Facebook Web Slice is only available for Internet Explorer 8. It can be downloaded from the Internet Explorer add-on’s gallery over at the Microsoft website.
