1th Step: Develop a personalized IE9 appearance
HuffPost defines the IE9 navigation button color, home page, window size, and tooltip, which are the support code for the fixed web site. Let users visit their favorite sites when they see the uniqueness of the site.
The 2nd step: let your users know
HuffPost also wants IE9 users to visit their site, reminding them to drag the site tag onto the system's taskbar. This effect requires only 15 lines of code.
3rd step: Different taskbar icons
HuffPost designed 5 different icons, each of which represents different content, such as news, policy, business, and media.
Step 4th: Using the notification feature
When news content changes, you can customize the icon to overwrite the icon before, so that the icon changes, the user's eyes to attract to the taskbar.
5th step: Dynamic Jump List
HuffPost uses a dynamic Jump List to change the contents of each column once every 15 minutes.
6th step: Previewing thumbnails
HuffPost also wants users to share their stories and interactions. Now, they can preview thumbnails from the right side of the taskbar in one click.
